Many of us receive misinformation related to kidney functionality and its diseases, and are therefore not aware of the negative consequences of kidney failure. For example, does back pain mean my kidneys are failing? How do I know if I have kidney failure? Would eating healthily help decrease the risks?

Join us to debunk kidney myths, highlight the facts of kidney failure, and share with you practical nutrition and exercise tips to take home.
