We believe that educating renal professionals is the key to providing high-quality care to patients living with kidney disease.

Year-round, the Kidney Foundation of Ohio’s staff educates renal healthcare professionals regarding services we provide to the community. The Foundation offers CEU programs to ensure renal healthcare professionals are kept up-to-date on the latest trends and innovations in healthcare. These activities provide excellent networking and skill-building opportunities.

If you are interested in learning more about our services, contact Molly DeBrosse, LSW at (216) 771-2700 or


The Kidney Foundation of Ohio and University Hospitals Transplant Institute present Professional Learning Series events several times throughout the year. We are currently in the process of scheduling events for the remainder of 2020. Please check back on this site or email us at for more information.


This annual two-day interdisciplinary conference features nationally recognized experts in the field of renal healthcare.

Participants will have access to an online exhibit hall to interact with exhibitors during breaks for a chance to win raffle prizes. Registration is closed at this time.
