Kidney School is a new, free interactive learning resource on the Web. It offers educational materials designed to teach kidney patients about kidney disease, treatment options and day-to-day coping skills.
Available at www.kidneyschool.org, Kidney School is an offering of the Life Options Rehabilitation Program, administered by the nonprofit Medical Education Institute (MEI) in Madison, Wisconsin.
“The National Kidney Foundation estimates that 20 million Americans have chronic kidney disease,” says Dori Schatell, MS, MEI’s executive director. “Our goal is to help inspire these people to have a positive attitude, get the answers they need and take action on their own behalf.”
