Are you passionate about preventing kidney disease? Do you enjoy educating others on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle? If so, our Kidney Health Coach program may be for you!

Coming early 2018: Kidney Health Coach

Kidney Health Coach is the American Kidney Fund’s new and improved community health education program, replacing Kidney Health Educator. The online Kidney Health Coach training course contains the most up-to-date information about preventing, managing and treating kidney disease, as well as living a healthy lifestyle.

After taking the course and passing a short quiz, Kidney Health Coaches will have access to:

  • 5 updated kidney health fact sheets
  • Kidney Health Coach PowerPoint presentation 
  • Dedicated Kidney Health Coach Facebook group
  • Incentives for participation

Most importantly, Kidney Health Coaches will have access to support and guidance from dedicated AKF staff members leading the program. Coaches can also find support and share their experiences through the connected community of Kidney Health Coaches doing similar work.

If you are interested in taking the Kidney Health Coach course once it launches, or have any questions about the program, please email to be added to our Kidney Health Coach email list.
