Your Kidneys & You Facilitator
Dates: Oct 15, 2020 - Oct 15, 2021
You can support NKF's kidney health awareness efforts through Your Kidneys and You (YK&Y), a signature program where volunteers are trained to help educate local communities through an in-person or web-based PowerPoint presentation. Put your public speaking skills to use and help us to engage with the public and those at-risk.
The Your Kidneys and You Facilitator role helps raise awareness among the general public of kidneys, risk factors for kidney disease and steps to take to keep kidneys healthy and reduce risk. Introduce the public to the National Kidney Foundation and the many programs and services available for patients and professionals. Training on the Your Kidneys and Your program will be provided. Basic knowledge of kidney function and kidney disease is helpful.
