WHAT
WE DO

Through our programs and projects, we provide kidney warriors with the tools they need to live happier and healthier lives.

PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

We are committed to developing high-quality programs to help decrease healthcare disparities in kidney disease while increasing the number of kidney transplants performed. We believe in empowering kidney warriors and their family members every step of the way. Our team regularly collaborates with members and industry experts on projects to make this happen. It’s an approach that keeps everyone happier and healthier. Below are the initiatives we are committed to that will make a lasting impact.

For information about sponsoring an information session in the Atlanta area, or partnering with the Kidney Champion Foundation to encourage patients to become better informed about kidney disease, please contact: Crystal King, Program Director at 404-913-9764 or crystal@kidneychampions.org

Kidney Education

In 2023, we educated over 87.4K people about kidney disease. We have strategies in place to expand our reach in 2024. Be sure to check out our latest educational materials. All resources are listed below.

Community Outreach

Our volunteer advocates present at churches and community centers, serve as speakers on panels, co-chairs of conferences, focus group participants, and patient research reviewers and participate in community health fairs to educate the public about kidney disease. 

Kidney Policy

We fight for impactful policy changes on the local, state and national levels. We strive to hold our leaders accountable, and to educate and empower others to take action. We work to advance legislation and regulatory policies important to kidney patients and their families. Get in involved and increase our impact.

“Kidney disease is a low-profile, unglamorous problem, a disease that disproportionately strikes minorities and the poor.”
