March is National Kidney Month, which provides you with the perfect opportunity to spread awareness by educating your community and your legislators about kidney disease and the importance of kidney health. You can find educational information on the website of our sister organization, the DPC Education Center to share with your family and community. Additionally, we can provide promotional materials for any awareness events you plan to hold in March. To request materials such as pens and squeezable kidneys, visit our materials request page or call us at 1-866-877-4242.
On the legislative front, you can ask your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Chronic Kidney Disease Improvement in Research and Treatment Act (S.598/H.R. 1130) as well as the newly introduced Living Donor Protection Act (S.2584/H.R.4616). Our Legislative Action Center helps you communicate directly with your elected officials, but now with our new activity tracker you can see where your legislators stand on kidney issues. You can search for your specific legislator by zip code or by using their name.
