AAKP developed a two-part webinar series on the topic of National Kidney Month and World Kidney Day focusing on this year’s theme of Women’s Health & Kidney Disease. The first webinar took place in February and discussed World Kidney Day in general including what AAKP is doing, what our Ambassadors are doing, and what you can do to celebrate WKD. The second webinar will take place March 22nd and will feature a panel of dynamic women speakers who will speak about Women’s Health & Kidney Disease.


AAKP is participating in these Hill Days as part of National Kidney Month.
