The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA) announced a milestone collaboration to counter the epidemic of cardiovascular and kidney disease in the U.S. This partnership represents a major joint effort between these two longstanding health organizations to combat this public health problem.
NKF and AHA will launch their partnership in a joint hypertension awareness campaign called “The Domino Effect” on April 25th. Kicking off with a media tour the campaign will alert Americans to the hazards of uncontrolled high blood pressure and the major risk factor for stroke, heart attack, heart failure and kidney disease. This campaign underscores that complications associated with these conditions can be curbed or stopped through early detection and prevention.
