World Kidney Day 2020
Saturday, November 2, 2019
World Kidney Day 2020 is on Thursday March 12th. NeST will be marking this. Can you help in some way where you are?
World Kidney Day is a nominated day around the world that raises awareness of kidney illness and conditions.
For all those involved in some way from hospital renal departments to those with kidney illness and their families - its a day to make our voice count and be heard.
It is not yet confirmed but we hope to mark this special day with laboratory tours in the world leading Bristol research labs and a Road Show for our new computer app to help patients record their daily readings and especially useful in times of relapse or admissions and much more!
From the www.worldkidneyday.org website
The World Kidney Day Team passionately believes it is important we make the general public aware of kidney diseases which affect millions of people worldwide, including many children who may be at risk of kidney disease at an early age. It is therefore crucial that we encourage and facilitate education, early detection and a healthy life style in children, starting at birth and continuing through to old age, to combat the increase of preventable kidney damage including acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease and to treat children with inborn and acquired disorders of the kidney. So let’s join forces once again to inform parents, caregivers, young patients, policy makers and the general public of the importance of identifying and treating childhood kidney diseases, instilling an awareness of the risks for their future from kidney damage that originates in childhood, therefore building healthier future generations!
So note the date and plan to use it to raise awareness via an event or in whatever way you can.
