Show USPSTF the evidence for a kidney disease screening recommendation

Share Your Recommendations for Chronic Kidney Disease Screening

ASN has advocated for more than a decade for federal support for routine screening to identify kidney diseases earlier and intervene to stop or slow progression.

Now, at the urging of ASN members, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) agreed to review its dated kidney disease screening recommendations for the first time since 2012. ASN needs your input on USPSTF's draft research plan. With your help, we can provide USPSTF with the evidence and information necessary to recommend kidney health screening for appropriate populations, empowering millions of Americans with knowledge of their kidney disease and access to earlier care to stop or slow its progression.
