National Kidney Foundation presents symposium about early detection and prevention of Chronic Kidney Disease

Passport Health Plan is sponsoring a Live CME/CE Professional Education Symposium about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) called “CKDinform: Early Detection and Prevention.”

This 3-hour CME/CE symposium focuses on the unique role that primary care practitioners (PCPs) play in managing CKD patients. The burden of CKD to the population, modifiable CKD risk factors, screening methods, and interpretation of test results will be discussed. Case-based questions are also included. The National Kidney Foundation designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.

This activity is designed for physicians (primary care, cardiologists, endocrinologists), nurses, advanced practitioners, and other clinicians who care for people with CKD.

This event will be happening from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, 2019, at The Olmsted, 3701 Frankfort Ave., Louisville. Regular Registration costs $25 (the deadline is Feb. 21), and on-site registration will cost $30.
