Transforming Kidney Care with Dr. Joseph Vassalotti (NKF)
Welcome to Healthy.io’s new podcast, Clinical Grade, where every month you’ll have a chance to hear our conversations with some of the world’s leading visionaries at the nexus of health and technology.
We’re launching Clinical Grade with a special episode for National Kidney Month. Our guest is Dr. Joseph Vassalotti, the Chief Medical Officer of the National Kidney Foundation, and a clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Together with Dr. Jonah Mink, a practicing family doctor and Medical Director here at Healthy.io, we’ll discuss how to align incentives and maximize the strengths of healthcare systems, primary care clinicians, and patients when fighting chronic kidney disease. You’ll also hear about the NKF’s efforts to raise awareness of kidney disease, including the “Are You the 33%?” campaign with Healthy.io. And before we sign off, we’ll introduce you to Tamara Walker of Athens, Georgia. She’ll share her experiences undergoing kidney dialysis and transplant, and advocating for kidney health.
