Virtual UCLA CORE Kidney Health Fair
Thank you for making our first virtual Kidney Fair a success! We had people from all over the world participate! Many lives were touched! We have received tremendous feedback including request to do this more often! Stay tuned for more updates on upcoming events!
UCLA CORE Kidney Virtual Health Fair-- May 17th, 2020
One of the key topics this year is on the urgent need to get new information out about kidney disease treatment during the pandemic, especially since the latest findings show that COVID-19 is leading to kidney failure among the most ill. One purpose of this event is to express solidarity among all human beings to fight the pandemic together. We will also be discussing the kidney health initiative that was enacted last year with a focus on slowing down the progression of kidney disease, increasing home dialysis and transplantation. We will come out of this stronger!
Stay tuned for more information, including a link to the recording on our virtual Kidney Health Fair for 2020!

The UCLA CORE Kidney Program and the Kidney Fair
Our mission is to improve healthcare delivery to patients with kidney disease, hypertension, and diabetes by implementing our CORE values of Clinical Excellence, Outreach, Research, & Education. We aim to spread awareness and provide resources for all patients, healthcare providers, and the general public. Our focus is on integrative medicine, with emphasis on prevention and education, so patients can become their best own advocates. We advance our campaign through our annual Kidney Fair. This year, we will be conducting the fair virtually. Participants are able to learn about the different types of kidney disease and related conditions, treatments, management strategies, and how to support friends and family with kidney disease. The feedback from participants show improvements in their lifestyles including a heightened knowledge and interest in kidney health.
All proceeds raised will go directly to research, education, and outreach of kidney disease.
