Penn KDSAP Retreat 2017.jpg


A Nationwide Movement

The national Kidney Disease and Screening Awareness Program (KDSAP) was created by Dr. Li-Li Hsiao (Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School) in 2008. KDSAP is a college student-run organization with three primary objectives:

  1. Providing kidney screenings and health education to underserved communities

  2. Furthering students' personal and career development

  3. Increasing interest in nephrology careers

          KDSAP was first started at Harvard, and new chapters have since been founded at various universities, including Penn!

Penn's chapter of KDSAP was founded in early 2017. PennKDSAP is comprised of student volunteers from the four undergraduate schools at Penn, and physicians from the Perelman School of Medicine and Penn Medicine. Based in Philadelphia, PennKDSAP works with doctors and community leaders to serve the community.
