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.

Host a Drive for Dialysis Program at your Offices

Challenge your staff to join the fight against kidney disease with a hands-on, team-building activity to assemble care packages for dialysis patients in the community where you live and work. Hosting a Drive is easy with our out-of-the-box program, but you can also get creative. Already have a day of service?
