Mar 14th, 2024 – World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day (WKD) is celebrated internationally every second Thursday in March to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys. This year, the theme of WKD is: Kidney Health for All – Advancing equitable access to care and optimal medication practice.


Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is estimated to affect more than 850 million people worldwide and resulted in over 3.1 million deaths in 2019.[1] Presently, kidney disease ranks as the 8th leading cause of death[2], and if left unaddressed, it is projected to be the 5th leading cause of years of life lost by 2040.[3]


Today, the Jones lab is staying hydrating and continuing to be mindful of our kidneys!
