The UKEEP (UCLA Kidney Education Enhancement Program) event is a free comprehensive educational program for patients with kidney disease.

Our Mission: A diverse group of specialists in their fields are invited to give talks to patients to help patients be their own advocates. This program will give valuable information about realistic and manageable changes patients can make in their daily life to improve their well-being, and prevent future health problems.
