Healthy Teens, Healthy Tomorrow: Teen Summit
The Kidney Foundation of Ohio recognizes the fundamental needs of children and family members affected by kidney failure and related complications. While the medical community is successful in addressing the needs of these individuals upon or following diagnosis, barriers remain to accessing routine and preventative health care.
Healthy Teens, Healthy Tomorrow: Teen Summit offers minority teens comprehensive education and information regarding positive lifestyle choices and risk factors contributing to chronic illness. In conjunction with Cleveland MOTTEP (Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program), teens are educated on nutrition and wellness, body and kidney health, and donation/transplantation.
