// MISSION

To prevent kidney disease and improve the quality of life for those living with it.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

While it’s true that we’re fighting kidney disease, it’s not a single-disease battle. Seventy percent of kidney disease cases can be prevented, so the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan must focus on the major causes of kidney disease — obesity, diabetes, and hypertension — to help people avoid it. The NKFM has a broad array of programs that are focused on addressing these health conditions to get at the root of the problem. Our evidence-based approach ranges from offering early childhood development programs focused on nutrition and physical activity, to hosting chronic disease prevention and management workshops for adults. Over the past 63 years of serving the people of Michigan, we’ve seen the power of prevention — and it’s our top priority.
