2018 World Kidney Day

 

World Kidney Day was on March 8th and this year’s theme was “Kidneys and Women’s Health”. It was chosen because it shared the day with International Women’s Day. To celebrate this important day, we hosted a week of kidney health education and awareness tables throughout Henry Ford Hospitals. Our friends from NKFM, Transplant/Gift of Life, and HAP took part in our event at HF-Detroit Campus and Dr. Snigdha Reddy gave a talk on the topic of Kidneys and Women’s Health in the Buerki Auditorium. Many people in the community are not aware of the severity of Chronic Kidney Disease and the health problems that it can bring on. We enjoyed meeting lots of new faces and hope that we made and impact on many. We thank everyone who played a part in making this week such a success.
