How Texas Kidney Foundation impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

The Texas Kidney Foundation’s (TKF) mission is to improve the health and well-being of people at risk or affected by Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). TKF educates the public about CKD, conducts free early detection screenings among high-risk populations, offers Continuing Medical Education accredited training to medical providers, and promotes a legislative agenda designed to change how we address CKD in Texas and beyond. Five TKF Board Members serve on the recently reinstated Governors Chronic Kidney Disease Task Force. In 2018, in partnership with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, TKF launched the Kidney C.A.R.E. (Clinician and Adult Renal Education) Campaign to raise awareness of CKD among medical professionals and the public. TKF has since served over 9,000 participants in 68 Texas counties.
