Advocacy & Public Policy

Kidney Health Advocacy Day 2017

Advocates from ASN and the American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) joined forces for the fifth consecutive year to advocate for Congress to increase kidney research funding at the National Institutes of Health and build support for the Living Donor Protection Act (H.R. 1270). This bill would help increase access to transplantation by protecting the rights of living organ donors.
