Exciting News! The Kidney Disease Prevention and Education Task Force, formerly known as IL SJR49, was included in a healthcare package that was added to L SB1864. The bill passed the House and the Senate and is now waiting for the Governor’s Signature. Read more about the task force here.
We are looking forward to participating with the Task Force.
“The plan also creates the Kidney Disease Prevention and Education Task Force Act. The 11-member group will create health education programs to increase awareness of and to examine chronic kidney disease, transplantations, living and deceased kidney donation, and the existing disparity in the rates of those afflicted. They are also tasked with delivering a long-term sustainability plan to the General Assembly by the end of next year.”
