About Us

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has."

- Margaret Mead

The Kidney Smart CKD Education Program was developed, written, edited and produced by a multi-disciplinary team representing Medical Directors, Registered Nurses, Registered Dietitians, Licensed Social Workers, and many others who are passionate about CKD Education. In many cases, the content development teams' were personally touched by Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), and in one case, by kidney donation and transplant.

DaVita VillageHealth would like to thank the Kidney Smart Subject Matter Expert Editorial Board for their attention to detail, dedication, hard work, and quick turn-around with their comments, feedback and edits.

Without this expertise in shaping the Kidney Smart program content, we could not accomplish what you see here today.
