about the programs
our mission in action
The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois supports the future of patient care by investing in Illinois' healthcare community. We offer medical practitioners access to continuing education, connect them to professional development opportunities, and help them stay up-to-date on advances in research and treatment.
It is our goal to bring professionals together, strengthen the nephrology communities of Illinois, and ensure that the front line of the fight against kidney disease treatment is as strong as possible.
Our professional events are programmed with input from medical experts, including input from our own Professional Advisory Board.
