Chronic Kidney Disease

In 2007, the Chronic Kidney Disease Initiative (CKD) was started by a former SNPhA Regional Facilitator Cornetta Levi, Pharm. D. and Abbvie Medical Science Liaisons, Nana Wiafe, Pharm. D. and Janinah Barreto, Pharm. D. The purpose of the initiative is to implement programs and projects to make people aware of the health disparities in chronic kidney disease and to utilize all resources to educate those at a higher risk about the prevalence, prevention, treatment, and management of the underlying causes of CKD.
