Take Action: Obesity & CKD

In recognition of 2017 World Kidney Day theme Kidney Disease & Obesity, the NRAA brings you Sharon Stall, MPH, RD, CSR, CDN from Rochester Regional Health Spencerport Dialysis Unit who will engage registrants in the relationship between obesity and CKD/ESRD with focus on dialysis care.

Over 600 million adults worldwide are reported as obese. Hypertension and diabetes, conditions linked to obesity, are some of the major risk factors for developing CKD and ESRD. The focus of this webinar will be on the dialysis patient. The speaker will provide dialysis professionals with strategies and practical advice to help educate patients to manage their dietary regime. She will provide practical take away points that are translatable for each member of the dialysis care team.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the demographics of obesity.
  2. Be informed about the screening tools for obesity.
  3. Learn about possible treatment options in the dialysis unit, to include diet, exercise and bariatric surgery.
