September 21 Webinar – Caribbean Climate and NCDs Workshop Series: Kidney Disease
Caribbean Climate and NCDs Workshop Series: Kidney Disease
Thursday, September 21, 2023 | Virtual | 6:00-7:30 PM EST
The incidence and costs of kidney diseases from communicable and non-communicable causes are already on the rise and expected to continue to increase globally — especially in low and middle-income countries. Many pathophysiologic processes which contribute to kidney disease are influenced by climate change. Action now is crucial to minimize the health impacts on the most vulnerable patients, while simultaneously reducing economic and health system impacts. Join us to examine the situation of climate change and kidney health in the Caribbean and Central America and discuss priorities for action.
