About the NKFM: Fighting Obesity, Diabetes, and Kidney Disease

Kidney disease is at the heart of our mission . . . to prevent kidney disease and improve the quality of life for those living with it. Because 64% of kidney failure is caused by diabetes or high blood pressure, we must also focus on its root causes.

While it's true that we are fighting kidney disease, this fight is not a single disease fight. Hence, we have a broad array of programs which are focused on addressing  obesity, diabetes and hypertension to get at the "root" of the problem. Over the last 60 years of serving the people of Michigan, we've seen the power of prevention and it's our top priority.

We're proud of what we're doing to fight these diseases and we're grateful to partner with so many worthy organizations, communities, and people on this quest.


Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:  

The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness. We foster an atmosphere of collaborative decision-making, communication, and openness within and across our project teams. We do this because we believe that NKFM is At Our Best when we are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team of employees who bring their individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent to their work. NKFM is committed to honoring and protecting our organizational culture and is dedicated to retaining quality employees who embody our core values. In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that candidates can bring in terms of their race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, marital status, or any other status or characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law. This applies to hiring, internal promotions, training, opportunities for advancement, terminations, and all other terms and conditions of employment. All NKFM employees, volunteers, clients, and contractors are expected to follow this practice.
