MARCH IS NATIONAL KIDNEY MONTH

March is National Kidney Month. This is a special time set aside to raise awareness about kidney health and activities. RSN invites members of the kidney community, our friends and our families to join in the conversation.

World Kidney Day is Thursday, March 10th. The theme this year is “Kidney Health for All” Bridging the knowledge gap to better kidney care. The 2022 campaign will focus on efforts to increase education and awareness about kidney health and on reducing the stubbornly high CKD knowledge gap at all levels of kidney care.

Here are some things you can do share to engage your community and circle of family and friends and help raise awareness of kidney health.
