HELPING CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT GOOD HEALTH
We have a corporate responsibility because of who we are and what we do, to take a lead role in chronic kidney disease (CKD) awareness and prevention. Both should start early.
In 2017, Fresenius Medical Care created the Kidney Kid “edutainment” program in the Asia-Pacific region. The goal was simple: educate children and their carers about their kidneys, in an eye-catching and interactive way through a website, game app, comic books, materials, and activities. The program is designed for children ages 6 to 12 and takes kids on adventures to teach them about kidney health.
On World Kidney Day 2022, Fresenius Medical Care North America launched our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to fund the Healthy Habits program. In addition, our employees will offer side-by-side support to youth through health and wellness resources and programming, and introduce kids to Fresenius Medical Care’s Kidney Kid Initiative, in 20 select Boys & Girls Clubs.
