The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan works to shape public policy on behalf of kidney disease patients and those at risk, those with diabetes and high blood pressure, the leading causes of kidney failure. It is our goal to assess and support proposed state and federal policies that will help us to move toward a healthier Michigan and prevent chronic kidney disease when possible.

Diabetes and Kidney Advocacy Day is a great way to help increase the funds allocated for diabetes and kidney disease in Michigan and you get to put your foot in the political ring at the same time. You are invited to attend and take part in this great opportunity to advocate to our state legislators about the importance of state funding for diabetes and kidney disease. Everyone is invited to be an advocate.
We're in the process of planning the next event. If you’re interested in sponsoring or participating in this important day, please email Christy Rivette at [email protected].
