Washington joins National Kidney Foundation’s first Health Equity Advisory Committee

Tiffany Washington, associate professor in the School of Social Work and a nephrology social worker, has been named to the National Kidney Foundation’s first Health Equity Advisory Committee.

The committee is responsible for directing and championing NKF’s health equity, community health and social justice efforts through research, education and key partnerships. This committee will work collaboratively with kidney patients, other NKF committees, as well as boards and NKF staff to advise in the design, implementation and evaluation of programs that support stronger and healthier communities.

Members of NKF’s Health Equity Advisory Committee will meet virtually for a period of two years.

Washington also serves on the editorial boards of NKF’s Journal of Nephrology Social Work and BMC Nephrology. Her research interests include caregiving and chronic kidney disease self-management.
