Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects nearly 14% of the U.S. adult population. The disease is asymptomatic until the late stages. In this 30-minute session, you will learn how to screen, diagnose, stage, and manage CKD. The session will focus on therapeutic and lifestyle interventions to slow the progression of CKD in your patient. Learn through a practical patient case followed by answers to commonly asked questions. The speaker will conclude with an open Q&A period.
