On World Kidney Day, a NephCure Kidney International staff member traveled to Stratford Landing Elementary School in Alexandria, VA to speak with a 5th grade classroom about Nephrotic Syndrome. They learned all about kidneys, Nephrotic Syndrome, and the brave patients that are part of the NephCure family. The kids are currently writing to “Pen Pals” to learn more about the journey that our patients experience. (If you are interested in having your child be a pen pal with one of the students, email Chelsey Fix at email@example.com)
The kids did some wonderful work decorating kidneys to help raise kidney awareness! Check out some of the kidneys below!
