World Kidney Day Seminar & Health Fair
This program will educate the people in our community about chronic kidney disease and the latest treatment options. A panel of physicians who specialize in nephrology will present the lecture and panel discussion.
The goal of the seminar is to build public awareness about the strong connection between diabetes and kidney disease. Participants will learn about the various treatment options for kidney disease and what people who don't have kidney disease can do to help maintain good kidney health.
After the seminar, the public is invited to attend a World Kidney Day Health Fair in the Washington West Lobby from 3 pm to 4 pm. Health experts from Washington Hospital, including kidney and dialysis nurses, pharmacists, dieticians and physical therapists, will be available to give out information and answer questions.
