Their Education Program provides kidney patients with free printed and web-based education materials to help patients and their family members understand chronic kidney disease. Their Support Services provide Alabama`s kidney patients with social activities in dialysis centers and a special gift during the holidays. The AKF also sponsors a pediatric patient camp through Children`s Hospitals.
