The Nashville (TN) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated has been selected to receive a Black K.A.R.E. Initiative sub-grant from The Central Area of the Links, Incorporated.
The primary goal of the Black K.A.R.E. Initiative is to raise awareness of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Black communities, with a focus on its risk factors, complications, treatment - and how to reduce the risk of kidney failure and/or improve outcomes for people living with the condition.
Black K.A.R.E. Initiative
The Nashville (TN) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated participated in the Meharry Medical College Community Health Cares Affair and provided education about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) along with whole, nutrient dense snacks perfect for kidney health.
Between November 2 - 4, 2021, the chapter hosted a three-part webinar series entitled Three Days of Connection + K.A.R.E. during which experts in health, nutrition and exercise shared valuable information to help win the fight against Chronic Kidney Disease. The series was in collaboration with community partners Metropolitan Interdenominational Church and the First Response Center Primary Care Clinic.
