Advocacy & Public Policy

World Kidney Day 2011

It is essential that we help the public and lawmakers recognize the importance of research in understanding the link between kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. World Kidney Day is a prime opportunity for the kidney community to raise awareness about improving the health of millions of kidney and heart patients.
