NKFM 2006-2007 Annual Report

  1. 1. 2006 - 2007 ANNUAL REPORT
  2. 2. NKFM Founded 1955 Guiding Principles Mission The mission of the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan • Striving to prevent chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its is to prevent kidney disease and improve the quality of life leading causes; diabetes and hypertension for those living with it. • Pursuing funding in support of our mission • Advocating for people living with and at risk of CKD • Promoting quality of care for people with CKD, diabetes and hypertension Vision Statement • Educating the public about CKD, diabetes, hypertension and obesity • Promoting organ and tissue donation “Making Lives Better” • Supporting research of CKD Key Facts/Statistics 1 in 9 1 in 3 Adults in Michigan with chronic Children born in 2000 who will kidney disease (769,000).

  3. 3. Chairman and President’s Message Looking back at the 2006-2007 fiscal year, the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM) is proud to still be at the forefront of Michigan’s fight against chronic kidney disease. As an accomplished, dedicated and well-respected organization, the NKFM is pleased with what has been accomplished yet we know there is much more to be done. The startling statistics are what keep us on the path of our mission . . . to prevent kidney disease and improve the quality of life for those living with it. One of every nine Ameri- can adults already has chronic kidney disease and most don’t know it while one in three children born in the United States in 2000 will develop diabetes without intervention. As diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, we know the number of people who de- velop kidney disease will rise. This is why our prevention efforts are vitally important. On the heals of the NKFM’s first and very successful prevention programs, Healthy Hair Starts with a Healthy Body™ and Dodge the Punch: Live Right™, the NKFM has been steadfast in it’s efforts to reproduce the wonderful outcomes obtained by these long-run- ning programs. This year we introduced the Eat a Rainbow program which educates kids on the importance of eating fruits and vegetables by combining it with a fun and age-ap- Daniel M. Carney propriate educational tool such as the colors in the rainbow. We’re eager to see the same President and CEO positive behavior change outcomes we’ve experienced with other prevention programs. The NKFM will continue to be the leading non-profit resource for those at risk of de- veloping kidney disease, those who have CKD, the family members it affects, and kidney disease professionals. We’ll continue to advocate for, listen to and empower people across M. David Campbell the state whose lives have somehow been touched by kidney disease. Chairman, Board of Directors The NKFM constantly relies on the guiding principles of the organization which include . . . • Striving to prevent chronic kidney disease CKD and its leading causes; diabetes and hypertension. • Advocating for people living with and at risk of CKD • Promoting quality of care for people with CKD, diabetes and hypertension • Educating the public about CKD, diabetes, hypertension and obesity • Promoting organ and tissue donation • Supporting research of CKD The NKFM is continually humbled by the dedication of our wonderful volunteers and friends. Without the time, talent and commitment of people like you we would not be able to do what we do. With your help and the help of many, many dedicated volunteers, we can meet the challenge of preventing chronic kidney disease for future generations. Your ef- forts are making lives better for others. 3
  4. 4. Touching a Child’s Life NKFM Kids Programs NKFM has developed and provided three school programs to teachers and their students for the past several years. Over the last eleven years KICK: Kids Interested in the Care of Their Kidneys has provided teachers with materials and a lesson plan to teach over 800,000 middle and high school students the importance of diagnosing and treating diabetes and hypertension. KICK also makes the case for students to sign the organ donor registry. Kids and Kidneys, aimed at fourth through sixth graders has been used by teachers with 155,000 kids in six years. This program, recently approved as a supplementary lesson by the Michigan Model for Health education, emphasizes the importance of good nutrition and physical activity as a means to avoid diabetes and hypertension and therefore to avoid or delay kidney disease. Our third school education program, Healthy Kids and Kidneys, utilizes health professionals to teach sixth grade students the importance of developing healthy lifestyles in order to maintain good “kidney health.” The Healthy Kids and Kidneys curriculum, an eight week, one hour per week course, has been honed for five years at Hutchins Middle School in Detroit and in middle schools in Pontiac for three years. In 2007, funding was secured to expand the program from an average of 80 students per year to 450 students per year. 4
  5. 5. Preventing Disease in the African American Community Dodge the Punch: Live Right™ After the tremendous success of the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan’s African American salon program, Healthy Hair Starts with a Healthy Body™, the NKFM piloted its first Dodge the Punch: Live Right™ campaign in Detroit in spring 2005. Since then, nearly 200 barbers have been trained. Through campaigns in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint and Muskegon, these barbers have reached more than 3,200 African American clients with important health messages and educational materials in an effort to reduce the high rates of chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure in their communities. The program works well based on the strong, trusting relationship African American men typically have with their barber. Like stylists in the Healthy Hair campaign, barbers serve as lay health advisors with their clients, offering a “barber talk”, brochures and incentives to compel clients to improve their overall health behavior. Referral resources to meet the needs of low-income and/or uninsured clients are included. Clients are also urged to make healthier food choices, get thirty minutes of exercise on most days, stop smoking, and take medication if already diagnosed. They also are encouraged to see their doctor to discuss their disease risks, get tested for disease, and “learn their numbers.” Each client receives a “Wellness Score Card” to track the results of their diagnostic tests. The Score Card includes such health indicators as blood pressure, cholesterol, fasting blood sugar, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and body mass index. 5
  6. 6. Connecting to People with Chronic Kidney Disease Public Policy Advocacy During 2007 NKFM advocacy focused on continued state funding for the Michigan Strategic Plan for the Prevention, Early Detection and Control of Chronic Kidney Disease and several federal issues. As Michigan struggled with difficult economic times, the legislature voted to support our State Kidney Plan and it was fully funded at $507,165.05. Michigan gained support from state legislators by educating them about the benefits of disease prevention. NKFM programs target 1.) primary prevention, 2.) secondary prevention focused on early detection and treatment of diabetes and high blood pressure, the two leading causes of kidney failure, to prevent chronic kidney disease and 3.) early detection and treatment of chronic kidney disease to delay kidney failure. Programs place an emphasis on high risk minority populations, especially those people of African American heritage. The NKFM “People Like Us” grassroots volunteers are our best advocates and the strength behind our public policy success stories. Senator Tom George, MD and Representative Alma Wheeler-Smith are recognized at the 2007 Lansing Champion of Hope event. Sally Joy, the NKFM’s Public Policy Consultatnt, presented the awards. 6
  7. 7. Investing in the Future Eat a rainbow Eat A Rainbow is an interactive and kid-friendly health educational program offered by the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. The Eat a Rainbow program was developed to educate preschool age children on eating healthy and increasing their physical activity on a daily basis. By relating the colors of fruits and vegetables to the colors of the rainbow, students will incorporate healthy eating in a creative way that is easy for them to understand. The curriculum is structured through activities that reinforce health, math, rhyming, reading comprehension, writing and physical activity and is presented through a series of six interactive books, The Adventures of Regie Rainbow Man. From The Goofy Green Forest to The Purple Paradise, each book focuses on a specific color from the rainbow. There is a related food activity that will allow for food sampling. The program effectiveness is measured by pre- and post-tests given to students on a weekly basis and pre- and post-tests being given to the parents at the beginning and the end of the program. The Eat a Rainbow program began in June 2006 and has educated 250 children to date. 7
  8. 8. Development Kidney Ball: Motown Magic The NKFM gathered its friends and supporters for the 2nd Annual Kidney Ball on December 2, 2006 at the Marriott-Detroit Renaissance Center. The black-tie event, themed “Motown Magic,” attracted 650 attendees and raised $400,000 for the numerous programs and services the NKFM offers to the many residents currently living with chronic kidney disease and those at risk. The Motown inspired evening included a cocktail hour, dinner, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment by the Jerry Ross Band. The outstanding atmosphere was created with huge Motown themed tapestries, cut-outs of classic Motown acts such as the Supremes and Temptations as well as the soulful sounds of Motown being played throughout the night. Steve and Cindy Shannon served as Chairs of the event. Steve is the General Manager of SAAB Automobile USA and Cindy is Vice Chair of the NKFM Board of Directors. The Honorary Chairs for the evening were Rick and Kathy Wagoner. Rick is Chairman and CEO of GM Worldwide and Kathy is Coordinator for Early High School Success at Detroit Country Day School. From the dedication of our outstanding committee to the efforts of our wonderful volunteers, the NKFM is lucky to have so many friends and supporters. 8
