Our President

Thank you for your interest in Kidney CARE Network International. In North America today, 1 in every 10 people is directly suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). When we consider patients’ families, friends, peers, and co-workers, however, the total number of people affected by it is much greater. Although CKD affects different people in different ways, it almost always has a significant impact on their their daily lives. For example, at advanced stages, CKD can restrict a patient’s eating habits, limit their physical functioning and impact their mental health. I urge you to consider helping us in our efforts to conquer CKD! Become part of the solution by considering a donation or by joining one of our dedicated teams. Help those affected by CKD to live as happy and healthy a life as possible.

Our Story

Founded in 2013, Kidney CARE Network International uniquely addresses the needs of individuals involved with chronic kidney disease – patients and families affected by it, relevant health care providers, researchers, and the public, by leveraging the talents of a multifaceted student and professional voluntary workforce. Our membership seeks out, recognizes and focuses on the unique issues identified by individuals with chronic kidney disease; these patient focused issues become central to our activities. Activities are aimed to either directly enhance patient quality of life; educate patients, health care providers, and the general public about relevant chronic kidney disease related issues; or mobilize any or all of these groups to support and further advance critical kidney research programs.

Our Executive

Kidney CARE relies on the generous effort and support of a wide range of talented volunteers made up of students, patients and their family members, allied health care professionals, physicians and community volunteers.
