Take Race Out of the Kidney Transplant Equation

The National Kidney Foundation believes using race and ethnicity in clinical calculations harms patients and perpetuates racism in kidney care. Join us in our mission to advance health equity in organ donation and kidney transplantation by signing our petition calling on the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) to remove ethnicity from the KDRI immediately.
