Support Groups

Support groups bring together people who are going through or have gone through similar experiences. 

Kidney patients and caregivers support groups are a growing need in many communities. The exchange of information and important patient-to-patient collaboration that occurs within a support group is one of the most valuable elements of patient participation.

See the list of Renal Support Groups below listed by state.  When you click on the state of interest, you can view a printable PDF of support groups by city.
