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 9th. The theme this year is “Kidney Health for All: Preparing for the Unexpected, Supporting the Vulnerable.” The 2023 campaign will focus on raising awareness about disastrous events, natural or man-made, international or local, and their impact on people living with kidney disease whose access to appropriate diagnostic services, treatment, and care is hindered.

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

Share and Raise Awareness About Kidney Disease:

Share these kidney quotes and health facts with your friends on social media. Use the hashtag #NationalKidneyMonth and tag us @RSNhope.
