Chronic Kidney Disease: Taking on CKD and Dialysis with Steve Belcher RN

Episode 109: Chronic Kidney Disease: Taking on CKD and Dialysis with Steve Belcher RN of Urban Health Outreach Media. Chronic kidney disease is a devastating disease that affects millions of individuals in urban communities across the United States. African Americans are three times more likely to develop kidney disease than Caucasians. In addition, there is a lack of chronic kidney disease awareness and promotion in the African American community.

As a result of the lack of awareness and promotion in urban communities, African Americans constitute more than 32% of all patients in the U.S. receiving dialysis for kidney failure, but only represent 13% of the overall U.S. population. Due to the overwhelming statistics, in September of 2014 Steven L. Belcher, RN, MSN, MS, saw a need to create an organization that would advocate, educate, enlighten, empower, and consult communities and individuals at risk for chronic kidney disease and other health-related issues.

Urban Health Outreach Media and Urban Kidney Alliance work to advocate, educate, enlighten, empower, and consult communities and individuals in urban cities at-risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and other health-related conditions. They collaborate and engage with community stakeholders and gatekeepers to increase health education awareness and promotion in urban communities at-risk for chronic kidney disease.

Their Vision: “To be a vital resource for kidney disease awareness and education for individuals and communities at risk for chronic kidney disease. We look forward to doing our part to create a world without health disparities and free of health information ignorance.”
