Help Others Make the Kidney Connection with Infographics

To help make the job a little easier for kidney health champions like you, NKDEP has developed a series of infographics (or visuals) that help explain how African Americans are affected by kidney disease throughout the country. Each infographic highlights the monetary impact of kidney failure and how diabetes and high blood pressure contribute to kidney disease.

The infographics focus on the 14 states that have hosted Kidney Sundays events and the District of Columbia, in addition to a nationally-focused infographic. To help your friends and family make the kidney connection, check out the infographics and visit our NIDDK Facebook page to share it with your friends.

Infographic that demonstrates that nearly one in eight African Americans is diagnosed with diabetes.
