About the event
It is currently the back-to-school season, and many young individuals are either returning to school or preparing to do so. However, young people with kidney disease face unique challenges that can be overwhelming. In this HealthLine presentation, a pediatric kidney doctor, a high school student with kidney disease, and a kidney caregiver will provide insights on the following topics:
- How can parents/guardians support their child in adapting to life with kidney disease?
- What impact can kidney disease have on a child's social, emotional, and developmental growth?
- How do eating, dieting, and nutrition affect children with kidney disease?
- Where can families seek assistance and support?
This HealthLine webinar aims to delve into the issues faced by young individuals with kidney disease and provide valuable information and guidance for parents, guardians, and families.
