A Faith Community’s Kidney Health Resource
African Americans are at a greater risk for kidney failure than other communities. Make a difference by introducing the Kidney Sundays tool kit in your place of worship.
As African Americans, we're at a greater risk for kidney failure than other communities. So how can we work together to improve kidney health?
Hi, I'm Dr. Griffin Rodgers, director of the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases at NIH.
Working with your faith leaders, you can introduce our Kidney Sundays tool kit in your place of worship. The tool kit has everything you need to start the discussion and help raise awareness about kidney disease, including print material on kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure; talking points for faith leaders to lead a group discussion; and tips for healthy eating.
You can also use the tool kit to talk to your friends, family, and community groups about kidney health. For the link to the Kidney Sundays tool kit, follow us on Twitter @NIDDKgov. This is Dr. Griffin Rodgers with the NIH.
