Kidney Interagency Coordinating Committee (KICC)
The Kidney Interagency Coordinating Committee (KICC) consists of Federal representatives involved in CKD programs and activities. KICC's purpose is to encourage communication and collaboration to shape a more coordinated Federal response to CKD. To support KICC, NIDDK:
- Hosts the Federal CKD Matrix, an online resource that summarizes CKD-related activities and provides contact information;
- Coordinates KICC meetings.
