The National Kidney Foundation was proud to launch a new professional council-the Council of Professional Living Donor Advocates (CPLDA), NKF’s fifth professional council. Living Donor Advocates (LDAs) are hospital-based professionals who are charged with ensuring protection of the rights of living donors and potential living donors.
The CPLDA advises the NKF regarding public policy recommendations to support living donors needs and develops “best practices” for the profession.
NKF Cares is a free, confidential hotline with trained professionals ready to answer your questions or concerns. Our peer-mentoring program, NKF PEERS, connects anyone affected by kidney disease with an informed and supportive mentor who has already been through the process.
