National Kidney Month

National Kidney Month is observed during March, but you can be a kidney health champion any time of the year! Here are ways to promote kidney health among your loved ones, patients, and community.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Preventing Kidney Disease:
Healthy Women, Healthy Families
National Diabetes Month - talking with patients

Be a role model! Help protect your family from kidney disease and its causes—diabetes and high blood pressure—by adopting healthy lifestyle habits.

Early treatment can help protect your kidneys. People with early kidney disease usually have no symptoms, which is why it’s important for people who have diabetes or high blood pressure to get tested.

Connect with Family, Friends, and Community

  • Share your family health history! If you’re planning a family reunion, print or download a copy of the Family Reunion Health Guide (PDF, 1.48 MB) to help family members make the kidney connection. Learn more about talking with your family.

  • Any Sunday can be a Kidney Sunday! Host a Kidney Sundays event to educate your faith community about kidney health. Download a free Kidney Sundays toolkit (PDF, 1.87 MB) to help you plan.
