ASN Webinar July 24: Advancing American Kidney Health Information

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) is hosting an exclusive webinar on the Advancing American Kidney Health initiative on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, from 2:00-2:45 p.m. EDT.

Hear an overview of the Executive Order launching the initiative, an overview of the forthcoming new payment models, and discuss the report from the office of Assistant Secretary of Planning and Evaluation. The webinar is free to attend.

Learn about the federal government's goals to:

  • Reduce the number of Americans developing kidney failure 25% by 2030
  • Ensure 80% of new kidney failure patients in 2025 are either receiving dialysis at home or receiving a transplant
  • Double the number of kidneys available for transplant by 2030.

The Advancing American Kidney Health initiative reflects many of the policy priorities ASN has advocated for and the society encourages you to join this webinar to learn more about these policy changes.
