CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA), a leading precision medicine company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers -- today announced that it is sponsoring the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Annual Kidney Patient Summit taking place on Capitol Hill on March 1-2, 2023.
This marks the eighth consecutive year that CareDx is supporting NKF’s Annual Kidney Patient Summit, which is held each year in March in recognition of National Kidney Month, a time when communities across the country raise awareness about kidney disease.
“CareDx is proud to join forces with NKF to ensure optimal care for patients living with kidney disease and to accelerate the early detection of chronic kidney disease to help reverse or delay the need for transplantation,” said Reg Seeto, CEO and President of CareDx. “We are committed to helping kidney patients at every stage of their journey, from early interventions to pre-transplant listing, to post-transplant monitoring, and most importantly to ensure that all patients have access to the latest transplant innovations.”
This year, Kidney Health advocates will be educating Members of Congress and their staff about the importance of protecting living organ donors; increasing funds for federal kidney disease awareness, education, and research programs; and increasing access to home dialysis.
“On behalf of our volunteers, patients and advocates, we are deeply grateful for CareDx’s steadfast support of our Annual Kidney Patient Summit,” said Kevin Longino, transplant recipient and Chief Executive Officer at the National Kidney Foundation. “Together with CareDx we continue to make progress on our shared goals of saving lives and improving the journey for all people living with kidney disease.”
For more than twenty years CareDx has invested in transplant innovations to improve long-term allograft outcomes and the patient journey. CareDx has supported important transplant legislative policies, including the 21st Century Cures Act to help bring new innovations to patients who need them faster, the Living Donor Protection Act to promote live organ donations and protect donors from discrimination, and through its formation of the "Honor the Gift Coalition" the passage of the Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients Act of 2020 (Immuno Bill). CareDx is recognized by NKF as a Circle of Excellence member by the American Society of Transplantation for implementing policies that financially support employees recovering from a living organ donation.
