For more than forty years, the American Association of Kidney Patients has been the patient's voice — advocating for improved access to high-quality health care through regulatory and legislative reform at the federal level. The association’s work has improved long-term outcomes in both quality of health and the ability for patients and family members affected by kidney disease to lead a more productive and meaningful life.
To that end, AAKP is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for the Jenny Kitsen Patient Safety Award. The award funds a lecture that will advance patient safety by exploring innovation in health systems management. A single grant of up to $5,000 will be awarded to fund the speaker's travel and accommodation expenses as well as honorarium costs associated with the delivery of the lecture.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) status as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, or a public or government agency.
