Emory nephrology team raises more than $5,000 for Kidney Walk

Emory’s dialysis team recently participated in the National Kidney Foundation’s annual Kidney Walk at Turner Field. The team raised more than $5,000 to help fund life-saving programs that educate and support patients, their families, and those at risk of kidney disease.

Emory University Department of Medicine faculty members Janice Lea, MD; James Someren, MD; Sharon Graves, MD; and Jason Cobb, MD participated in the walk, along with several other members of the Division of Renal Medicine and the Emory Dialysis Clinics.

If you’d like to make a donation to the Kidney Walk, there’s still time. Visit the National Kidney Foundation’s website for details.
