Virtual Education Series: Connect, Learn, and Share

We may be physically distant, but that doesn't mean we can't connect and learn together. Join us for information and resources for people at all stages of kidney disease. Connect with health experts, other kidney patients, and NKF resources. This event will be held virtually via webinar and will be recorded.
