The Division of Nephrology within the Brody School of Medicine recently form a center to focus attention on the needs of patients with kidney disease in eastern North Carolina. It is estimated that more than 40 million Americans have or at risk for CKD. The estimate for CKD in eastern North Carolina is exacerbated by poor access to health care.
