Implementing the “Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative” by Leveraging Nutritional and Dietary Management of Kidney Patients

This month’s editorial of the Journal of Renal Nutrition (JREN) is devoted to both the recent presidential Executive Order (EO) on kidney health initiatives and the articles published in this issue of JREN. On July 10, 2019, the US government took a series of actions to advance kidney care in the nation including a presidential EO entitled, “Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative.”1 The EO’s intention is to prevent kidney failure through better diagnosis and treatment as well as better incentives for preventative kidney care.
