Kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States. Each day 304 people are diagnosed with kidney failure. In addition, African American communities are at serious risks for chronic kidney disease and other health-related conditions. An estimated 31 million people in the United States have chronic kidney disease (CKD).
As a result of these astonishing statistics, Urban Kidney Alliance seeks to engage communities and individuals to take action to change health behaviors and raise awareness and education for kidney disease and health-related conditions.
Urban Kidney Alliance has created education workshops and presentations to engage in community involvement for chronic kidney disease and other health-related conditions. Most importantly, treating kidney disease has become costly for patients, employers, and taxpayers. In 2011, the total Medicare spending was $549.1 billion, and of that cost for kidney failure was $34.3 billion, or 6.2% of the total Medicare budget. To help reduce this staggering cost, Urban Kidney Alliance, seeks to engage and collaborate with community stakeholders to educate, enlighten, and raise awareness in urban communities across the nation.
We welcome and seek to engage in partnerships with individuals, nonprofit organizations, community leaders and stakeholders and other interested coalitions seeking to reduce health disparities and inequalities in African American communities across the United States.
