Urban Kidney Alliance works with community stakeholders to increase and raise awareness and promotion for kidney disease and health-related conditions in urban communities impacted by the disease.
Established in 2014, Urban Kidney Alliance chief objectives is to raise awareness and help reduce morbidity and mortality caused by chronic kidney disease and its complications.
Urban Kidney Alliance aims to improve education, awareness, and early detection of chronic kidney disease and health-related conditions in urban communities at-risk for this disease. To achieve our objectives, Urban Kidney Alliance works in collaboration with a range of nonprofits, community organizations, and other health education establishments to raise awareness among communities and individuals at risk for chronic kidney disease.
In addition, our purpose is to promote the need for testing; provide information, training, and tools to help individuals and communities raise their awareness for chronic kidney disease and other health-related conditions. In order, to achieve these task, Urban Kidney Alliance collaborates with community stakeholders to assist with health educational and promotion programs to increase community awareness and change health behaviors.
African Americans are at highest risk for kidney failure and, as such, Urban Kidney Alliance places a distinct emphasis on reaching out to urban communities and individuals at risk for kidney disease.
The centerpiece of Urban Kidney Alliance outreach education program is the Kidney Disease Education Workshop (KDEWS), which is a kidney disease interactive workshop for individuals at-risk for chronic kidney disease and other health-related conditions. Our other community initiative the Urban Community Health Promotion Outreach Program consist of a variety of educational presentations and workshops aimed for community health education and enlightenment.
In 2015, Urban Kidney Alliance collaborated and appeared on WEAA.org Urban Health Beat with Marilyn Harris-Davis, to discuss the devastating effects of kidney disease in the African American community. In 2016, Urban Kidney Alliance has partnered with Betsy Simon and the Z-HAP Family to present periodically presentation and education workshops to community participants.
