About The Small Organization with the Loud Voice

100% volunteer 501c3 operated organization, Health & Awareness is working hard to raise awareness regarding the increasing epidemic of kidney disease – the fastest-growing noncommunicable disease in America.  The positive results received from patients attended and following the prevention information at our workshops encourage us to go where our service is a need and no other organization will attempt to go.  We concentrate on our seniors and less well-off neighbors; those without or unable to afford internet service or computers.  Our mission is solely funded by donations.

Mission

Health & Awareness is a chronic kidney disease prevention nonprofit organization dedicated to educating more people from ever developing kidney failure in the first place.  We believe that everyone deserves to be made aware that dialysis and kidney transplant can be avoided.

Vision

To decrease the 96% of people with early kidney disease who are unaware they have it through encouraging kidney screening and early detection and treatment.

Our Objectives

-Raise awareness about the increasing cause of Kidney disease. Highlight that diabetes and high blood pressure are key risk factors for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
-Encourage systematic screening of all patients with diabetes and hypertension for CKD.
-Encourage preventive behaviors and healthcare compliance.
-Educate everyone about the key role in detecting and reducing the risk of CKD, particularly in high-risk populations.
-Stress the importance of learning your family health history - if action is not taken, the growing number of people with CKD will continue to increase.
-Encouraged local government to take action and invest in further kidney screening.
-Encourage Transplantation as a best-outcome option for Kidney failure, and the act of organ donation as a life-saving initiative.

Health & Awareness want to be the voice for those unable to speak up.

One of Health & Awareness's goals is to training and encourage other organizations to establish a kidney disease prevention workshop. By finding people with kidney disease early and sharing the knowledge of prevention I am confident that people who choose to take advantage of the prevention strategies can avoid dialysis and the need for a kidney transplant; lowing the shortage for kidney organ donors.

Health & Awareness volunteers are kidney recipients, donors or volunteers of family members or loved ones.  Through our grassroots advocacy workshops and programs, we will train anyone with an interest to advocate for kidney disease-related issues.

Prevention Motivated Organization

As the voice of the people and for the people.  Our Founder is passionate about helping others receive the prevention information to help them have a choice of dialysis or kidney transplantation.  We also rely on input from other dialysis patients and kidney recipients to help educate and advocate prevention.
