Welcome to Mike Program
MIKE Program empowers youth to be health leaders—ambassadors for healthy kidneys—through education, mentorship and community outreach. We exist because chronic disease conditions including obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure are increasingly impacting our children, especially low income and minority children.
