March is National Kidney Month, National Social Worker Month and National Nutrition Month. This is big month for creating awareness of kidney disease and recognizing dialysis caregivers, especially social workers and dietitians, and the contributions they make to the well-being of people with kidney disease and those on dialysis.

I go to the davita website a lot for recipes and information - it's a great source. Thanks for reminding us about Nat'l Kidney Month - with lupus, we really need to pay attention to our kidneys.

My mom goes to a Davita facility for her dialysis, so I'm on their email lists and check in with the website often as well.

They also have the blue kidney awareness bracelets available, and with so many here having kidney issues....well...I get so much out of this group, I'd like to give back too.
