We believe that educating renal professionals is the key to providing high quality care to patients living with kidney disease.
Year-round, Kidney Foundation of Ohio staff educate 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.
