Statistics show that 26 million Americans have CKD but only 10% are diagnosed. Kidney disease is often a silent killer, with a diagnosis coming only when the kidney is in failure.
The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.
Ed Medeiros, CEO- East Commerce Solutions, Inc. & Corporate Chair of the Boston & Rhode Island Kidney Walks along with Andrea Finnerty, Executive Director-National Kidney Foundation Serving New England, joined us Wednesday to discuss their upcoming 2016 Rhode Island Kidney Walk.
