THE STORY:

National Kidney Foundation of Illinois, Inc. wrote -

Through its mission of prevention, education and empowerment, the  National Kidney Foundation of Illinois has since evolved into a  multi-faceted non-profit organization. Educational programs and support  are provided for individuals living with kidney disease and their  families, continuing education programs for healthcare professionals,  and advocacy to advance initiatives that directly affect the care and  treatment of kidney disease.  


Through the KidneyMobile® program, the most comprehensive and  accessible screening, education and referral program of its kind, the  National Kidney Foundation of Illinois is able to offer free prevention  education and health screenings throughout the state, educating  communities about the growing epidemic of kidney disease, diabetes and  high blood pressure and the ways in which these diseases can be  prevented.   Hundreds of healthcare professionals in Illinois belong to the National  Kidney Foundation of Illinois Professional Advisory Board, Illinois  Council of Nephrology Nurses and Technicians, Illinois Council on Renal  Nutrition and Illinois Council of Nephrology Social Workers, all of whom  develop educational programs for their members and work with the  foundation's staff and committees to provide information, education, and  programs for patients.  


Additionally, the NKF, its affiliates and divisions are leaders in the  funding of medical research in the area of kidney disease. Over one  third of the medical research funded for kidney disease in the United  States is funded by the NKF, its affiliates and divisions.
