IgA Nephropathy Awareness Day Friends/Partner Toolkit

As part of our mission to build a support network, we have created the “IgANCARE” program, which will serve as a medical provider resource for patients with IgA Nephropathy. We are actively looking for Nephrologists willing to participate in this program. There is no cost to participate, and your participation will help improve the lives of our patients living with IGA Nephropathy.
