2020 Kidney Patient Summit Postponed

Over the weekend, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its recommendations for older adults and people with kidney disease or other severe chronic medical conditions. They note that these groups appear to be at higher risk for experiencing more serious Coronavirus illness. Out of an abundance of caution, and to protect the health of our patients advocates during the current outbreak of COVID-19, NKF is postponing the 2020 Kidney Patient Summit.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our advocates. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please stay safe and healthy during the next few weeks.  Please see updated information about the Coronavirus on the NKF website or by following updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We will be in touch with Summit participants about rescheduling the Summit to a future date, and other activities you can participate in to support our policy priorities.  If you are interested in engaging as an advocate for the kidney community, email NKF at NKFadvocacy@kidney.org.
