About us! 

CRN of Northern California/Northern Nevada is an affiliate of the National Kidney Foundation. We are a non-profit organization devoted to improving the care of patients with kidney disease. Although the majority of our members are Nephrology Dietitians, we also welcome individuals working in other disciplines/fields within the CKD community.


Our Goal is to promote the well being of people with chronic kidney disease. 

  • Our members help to raise funds to support the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Northern California

  • Members also volunteer services to the Renal Community in a variety of ways!

    • Serve on the NKF of NorCal Board of Directors

    • Contribute to local ESRD Networks


We provide continuing education to healthcare professionals through meetings, events, and symposiums. 


CRN also provides educational grants to members in order to expand knowledge and experience to support the treatment of people with kidney disease.
