Programs & Education
The Tennessee Kidney Foundation strives to educate the public about kidney disease
and organ donation through speaker bureaus, health fairs, and literature distribution.
The KARE program is a free health screening that seeks
to identify individuals at increased risk for kidney disease
and encourage them to seek further evaluation and
follow up with their physicians.
HIKE is our education program for 7th graders in Cheatham,
Davidson, Robertson, Rutherford, and Sumner Counties. The goal
of the H.I.K.E. Program is to educate students about their kidneys,
what causes kidney disease, including high blood pressure and diabetes, treatment, organ donation and how healthy lifestyle choices can decrease their risk for kidney disease.
We partner with Network 8 and QSource to provide these
professional education programs preparing dialysis nurses and patient care technicians to perform proper assessment
and cannulation of hemodialysis access. Topics include: physical exam of hemodialysis vascular access, cannulation procedures and hands-on cannulation practice.
