The Kidney Disease Screening and Awareness Program (KDSP) mixes community screening with student mentorship. It is a student-run organization designed and implemented through Dr. Hsiao’s leadership that provides free kidney health screenings and health education to underserved communities, providing programs geared towards improving the health of underserved populations. KDSAP is one of the first models that strategically targets undergraduate students early in their educational career to help address the current nephrology workforce crisis. KDSAP has gained nation-wide and international attentions and several institutions have requested to start KDSAP at their institution.
This lecture luncheon is open to all who are interested in improving the care of the underserved and mentoring a new generation of Nephrologists.
