Kidney Health Education Forums are an excellent opportunity to gain practical information and understanding of managing nutrition and lifestyle options, when living with CKD.

Consumer Education Forums are held in communities across Australia for the general public, to increase awareness of our kidneys and how they work and the links to kidney health, heart health, blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.
