Kidney Health Month and World Kidney Day 2023
March is Kidney Health Month in Canada and World Kidney Day was recognized internationally on March 9. It is a great campaign to raise awareness around the world about the importance of our kidneys!
Can-SOLVE CKD released a special newsletter supporting the event and helping to raise awareness of the 2023 theme “Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable.”
Nominations now open for the Barbara Ann LeGay Award for Patient-Oriented Research 2023
The Barbara Ann LeGay Award for Patient-Oriented Research is presented to a patient who has demonstrated a special knowledge and interest in the inter-relationship between medical care providers, researchers and patients. It is an acknowledgement of the central role that the patient shares in the development, testing and implementation of new practices and procedures in the provision of appropriate care for persons living with kidney disease.
The award will be presented in May at the Can-SOLVE CKD Annual Meeting 2023 in Halifax.
Nominations now open for Howard Vincent Reconciliation Award 2023
The Howard Vincent Reconciliation Award honours a non-Indigenous individual who has demonstrated commitment to furthering Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples within the Can-SOLVE CKD Network or who has inspired others to continue Reconciliation efforts.
Reconciliation must take root in our hearts and through our actions, and the Howard Vincent Award celebrates those who demonstrate exceptional leadership, integrity and respect while taking meaningful action towards Reconciliation.
We invite all network members to nominate a champion of Reconciliation who strives to build relationships across cultures. The award will be presented in May at the Can-SOLVE CKD Annual Meeting 2023 in Halifax.
