The Kidney Walk is the nation's largest walk to fight kidney disease. Held in nearly 100 communities, the event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk. Take a lifesaving step today and sign up for a walk below.

Primary care practitioners (PCPs) will be able to recognize the importance of early detection and prevention of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and be able to identify ways to partner with nephrology professionals to provide the best possible care for CKD patients. Participants will receive continuing medical education credits/contact hours.
