National Kidney Foundation Calls Congress’s Attention to the Need for Cures, Better Treatment for Kidney Disease

On May 1, 2014, the House Energy and Commerce Committee launched the 21st Century Cures Initiative to help Members of Congress gain greater insight on the barriers to developing new cures and improved treatments for various diseases.  To make sure that treatments and cures for kidney disease are part of the conversation, the National Kidney Foundation issued comments on the need for the federal government to expand its efforts to facilitate cures, treatments and research for kidney disease.  NKF is excited to see Congress launch a national discussion on how to speed up development of new treatments for diseases and we will continue to participate in this ongoing initiative to ensure that the needs of kidney patients are heard.  You can also contribute to NKF’s future comments on the issues by sharing your thoughts and experiences through this brief survey.
