NORD

Dedicated to preventing renal (kidney) disease, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

More than 20 million Americans have chronic kidney disease in the United States. With annual costs ranging towell-over $80,000 per patient, renal disease costs the United States over $40 billion every year when its top two causes - diabetes and hypertension - are completely preventable.  Unfortunately, it is the underserved and minority populations who pay the price, suffering largely due to the lack of education, awareness, and the exhorbitant cost of heathcare.

Mamie V. Jackson founded the corporation in 1998 when she realized that there was a need for a heightened awareness of critical health information within communities chronically affected by renal disease and related illnesses.  The mission of the National Organization for Renal Disease (NORD), then, is to change the face of kidney disease by aggressively promoting good health though education, disease prevention, and follow-up in the greater Los Angeles area.  NORD provides critical and preventive medical, educational, health screenings and research information to under-insured, under-served adults at high risk of developing renal (kidney) disease and its precursors: African American, Asian, American Indian, Latino, Caucasian, Pacific Islander, and Senior communities.

NORD also promotes organ and tissue transplantation and other progressive therapies in treatment modalities through innovative, cutting edge, research and permanent testing sites until we find an effective way to treat these chronic diseases.
