Our new Your Kidneys and You program was developed to raise awareness among the general public and individuals at risk for kidney disease by educating them about kidneys, risk factors for kidney disease, and how to protect your kidneys. Reaching 73 million people is a huge task and one that can only be accomplished by utilizing trained and dedicated volunteers. This program is designed so that anyone can present it; a medical background is not needed. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Rachel.
