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.
