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.

Beth Witten, nephrology social worker, established the Culpepper Exum Scholarship for People with Kidney Disease as a memorial to her brother who had diabetes and was on dialysis prior to his death from heart disease in 2002. This scholarship is intended to help two deserving dialysis or transplant patients attend any educational program. The award is for $1,000 per scholarship for one school year paid directly to the institution. Two scholarships will be awarded this school year—one to a Kansas resident and one to a Missouri resident. Applications are due to the National Kidney Foundation Serving Kansas & Western Missouri no later than May 16, 2016 and will be considered by an appointed committee.
