Every member of the ASN Alliance for Kidney Health is excited to help elevate care, drive breakthroughs and innovation, educate and inform, and propel policies that create momentous changes in kidney health. To accomplish these goals and others, ASN and the rest of the alliance will:
1. Launch the ASN Health Justice Committee to address health disparities and influence social determinants of health in populations at risk for and overburdened with kidney diseases.
2. Initiate the ASN Loan Mitigation Pilot Program to reduce the loan burden for six recipients by $50,000 over three years. First-year awards will center on individuals racially underrepresented in medicine.
