Interested in Kidney Health Presentations?

Make a difference by spreading awareness about kidneys and kidney disease in your local community. The National Kidney Foundation’s Your Kidneys & You program is a basic and easy-to-present program addressing the #1 goal of NKF’s strategic plan: to increase awareness of the kidneys and kidney health among the 73 million American adults who are at risk for kidney disease.

Your Kidneys & You consists of a 30 minute presentation with accompanying educational handouts. A trained NKF volunteer will come and present to your community group, church or religious service, or office gathering – large or small. Learn more or schedule a presentation by contacting Danielle Esquivel'
