American Kidney Fund Raises Awareness, Honors Kidney Heroes during National Kidney Month
Date:3/1/2010

Today, the American Kidney Fund (AKF) kicked off its annual celebration of National Kidney Month with initiatives designed to raise awareness of kidney disease and the importance of prevention and early detection.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 1, 2010 -- Today, the American Kidney Fund (AKF) kicked off its annual celebration of National Kidney Month with initiatives designed to raise awareness of kidney disease and the importance of prevention and early detection.

AKF’s observance will include kidney disease prevention events in select cities; an advocacy day on Capitol Hill; a new Kidney Heroes podcast series; and an interactive National Kidney Month webpage.

“This year, my vision is that we truly ‘celebrate’ National Kidney Month, by honoring people who make a difference for kidney patients; sharing health information and tips; bringing together kidney patient advocates; and reaching out to broader audiences with our prevention messages,” said LaVarne A. Burton, President and CEO of the American Kidney Fund. “It is important for people to know that kidney disease is common and can be prevented.”

The American Kidney Fund’s mission is to fight kidney disease through direct financial support to patients in need; health education; and prevention efforts. AKF’s initiatives, programs and events during the month of March will help to further the organization’s outreach to all Americans who are at risk of, or living with, kidney disease—our nation’s ninth leading cause of death.
