To Free Information Session about Kidney Disease

Treatment Options Program (TOPs) for Dialysis Patients and Others at Risk



Millions of Americans have kidney disease, and many of them don't know it. Fresenius Medical Care is hosting a Treatment Options Program (TOPs) session at no cost for anyone who wants to learn more about chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the different kinds of treatments available today.

Open to the public, Fresenius Medical Care's TOPs is a community education program designed for:

– Chronic kidney disease patients who may need dialysis, or want to be prepared by learning about their treatment options early in the progression of their CKD.
– Existing dialysis patients who are interested in learning about alternative treatment options.
– Family members, friends and caregivers.
– Anyone at risk for CKD, including:
– People with diabetes or high blood pressure.
– Ethnic groups, including African Americans, Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans.
– Senior citizens.
– People with a family history of CKD.

At the TOPs session, people facing kidney failure can learn about the treatment options that best suit their health and lifestyle needs. Fresenius Medical Care healthcare professionals will talk about managing CKD, dialysis treatment options, kidney transplants, patient support services and more.
