“Reaching beyond the stars” Gala Redesigned

In consultation with transplant infectious disease physicians and the NKFI Medical Advisory Board, The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana has redesigned our originally scheduled October 23rd “Reaching Beyond The Stars” gala to a 6-week asynchronous celebration that doesn’t include gathering. As a major public health organization, the National Kidney Foundation of Indiana does not want to take a chance of transplant recipients, other kidney patients, or our vital first-line workers contracting COVID.

With your health and safety in mind, our “Reaching Beyond The Stars” gala will be coming to you from the comforts of your own home. Each week from October 25th thru December 6th, the National Kidney Foundation of Indiana will recognize a nursing honoree on our social media accounts for their hard-work and dedication to fighting kidney disease. All honorees will also be featured in a special addition of the NKFI newsletter and be invited to future NKFI events.
