Every day at the Mississippi Kidney Foundation we witness the remarkable courage of people in the face of unimaginable challenges. This courage encourages us to strive to maintain the impactful programs, ensuring the best possible outcome for Mississippi. According to the Center for Disease Control, Mississippi ranks the highest in the country for rate of kidney disease and the highest in the country for deaths due to kidney disease. Our programs have the ultimate goal of creating a healthier Mississippi. All of our programs are made possible through the generous support of donors.
These conferences are designed for kidney dialysis patients, kidney transplant patients, as well as kidney patient family members/caregivers.
Patient and Family Picnic
An outgrowth of past support groups, the annual picnic is a fun time for patients and their families to take a break from dialysis schedules and come together for food, fun and fellowship.
