Download the Kidney Health Coach education session presentation
Use this resource when conducting your kidney health education presentations. The presentation is similar to the Kidney Health Coach online course but does not go as in-depth as the training course does.
We have provided notes to help guide you through the presentation. Do not feel like you need to read the notes word-for-word, instead the notes can act as your guide. Feel free to make the presentation your own. We recognize you come with your own life experiences and knowledge and hope you will use this to enhance your presentation.

- Got a tough question during a session that you did not know the answer to? Write it in the Facebook group. A fellow Kidney Health Coach or AKF staff member will get back to you. By sharing your question publicly, you will be educating other Kidney Health Coaches, too.
- Share the successes and challenges you may face. Others will likely have similar experiences.
- Get information from AKF resources, webinars for Kidney Health Coaches, tips for hosting sessions, and AKF events.
