Employee Wellness

Your Kidneys & You

Medicare alone spends $87 billion caring for individuals with kidney disease. Go from "zero" to "kidney consciousness" in less than 3 minutes with our Your Kidneys and You video! This can be embedded on corporate Intranets as part of an employee wellness program, shown at community health fairs, or shared with members of your organization.
 
For information on the above program please contact Program Director, Stacey Senat, at Stacey.Senat@kidney.org.

Ask Your Employer About Participating in a Drive For Dialysis Event!

Does your company have a volunteer day? Ask them to consider a Drive for Dialysis Event! These are great volunteer events hosted at corporate locations for staff to learn about kidney disease and put together bags of items for dialysis patients. The volunteers are provided with materials that are helpful to local dialysis patients to be pulled together in a tote bag and they add a personal message for the bag recipient. NKF then delivers these bags to a local dialysis center. Staff learn about kidney health, hear from a patient speaker, and create care packages that are very meaningful for local patients.
 
Hosting a Drive for Dialysis event is easy! Ask your company if they would have a volunteer event for staff with our out-of-the-box program. We'll work with the company to design a volunteer opportunity that meets your company's unique needs! For more information please contact Kenneth Chamberlain at kenneth.chamberlain@kidney.org.
