The American Kidney Fund’s Kidney Action Summit

May 13 @ 8:00 am - May 15 @ 5:00 pm

The American Kidney Fund's Kidney Action Summit

Our own Candace Turner will be speaking at the American Kidney Fund’s Kidney Action Summit coming up soon! Ambassadors all over the country join the American Kidney Fund (AKF) in advocating for legislation to address the health disparities that often lead people to develop kidney disease, ensuring that at-risk patients have access to the health care and healthy communities. Addressing these disparities is even more urgent now, given the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color.

The AKF will also be advocating to increase federal protections for living organ donors in order to reduce barriers to organ donation. We’re supporting you Candace!
