Chronic Kidney Disease Prevention Strategy in Michigan 2021-2026
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan, together with several private and public organizations and community members, collaborated to create the Chronic Kidney Disease Prevention Strategy in Michigan 2021-2026. This plan calls upon partners in healthcare, government, and communities to direct their efforts toward a common goal for chronic kidney disease prevention and to achieve the plan’s objectives. Ending the public health crisis of chronic kidney disease cannot be accomplished solely by any one organization. Current and potential partners have the opportunity to be engaged in this plan by supporting communities as they work to identify and solve health issues, advocating for a community health worker workforce, and measuring the effectiveness of chronic kidney disease prevention intervention efforts.

Hypertension Core Curriculum
In 2005, the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services and the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan convened a group of hypertension experts to identify strategies that will improve blood pressure control in Michigan. Participants included physicians from across Michigan specializing in clinical hypertension, leaders in academic research of hypertension and related disorders, and representatives of key health care organizations that are addressing this condition that afflicts over 70 million U.S. adults. The Hypertension Expert Group has focused on approaches to reduce the burden of kidney and cardiovascular diseases through more effective blood pressure treatment strategies. The result is the state-side Hypertension Core Curriculum, designed to serve as a comprehensive guide for updating clinical knowledge of hypertension and related disorders.
