The following map represents the KEOP presence across NC counties, including media campaigns using local citizens as awareness spokespersons and billboards promoting the importance of increased organ donation.
The KEOP has 3 major community and evidence-based emphases:
- Conversations to raise awareness about CKD and its primary risk factors
- CKD screenings for persons at increased risk for developing CKD
- CKD awareness media campaigns
If you would like for someone from the KEOP to visit your community to engage in conversations about the ways that associated chronic illnesses affect kidney health and the role of good self-management in preventing CKD or in slowing its progression, contact Trina Pugh, UNC Kidney Center Administrator, 919-445-2648 or email@example.com.
