Heart Your Kidneys Partner Toolbox

Kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the U.S. In fact, 1 in 3 Americans adults is at risk. More than 30 million Americans have chronic kidney disease and most don't even know it. March is National Kidney Month, and we are asking for your help in raising awareness about kidney disease and changing these numbers.
 
World Kidney Day is March 14, 2019 and the National Kidney Foundation will be advancing Heart Your Kidneys™, our national public awareness campaign which aims to elevate kidneys to the level of the body's other essential organs such as the heart – because just like the heart, when your kidneys stop working, so do you.
