Kidney Month 2021

Once again, National Kidney Month is upon us and what a year it has been with its many challenges due to the pandemic. Regardless of circumstances good or bad, people with kidney disease cannot afford to skip a beat when it comes to self-care, treatment adherence, and the discipline needed to be healthy. Accordingly, we remain dedicated to our mission, To Improve The Future Outcomes For Individuals With Kidney Disease & Other Related Conditions. In recognition of National Kidney Month 2021, we honor and support the millions of individuals impacted by kidney disease and the countless health care providers on the front lines who selflessly care for these patients and their families.
