Detection of Chronic Kidney Disease of Unknown Etiology in Florida by Repurposing a Statewide Data Infrastructure for Surveillance | April 26, 2023 @ 1 P.M. EDT

April 26, 2023

Chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu) has emerged as a top health concern for agricultural workers in hot climate zones. While the cause is unknown, the leading hypothesis is that workers in hot climates are subject to repeated heat stress and dehydration.

In our upcoming webinar, hear from Dr. William Hogan as he shares his current research to study and improve a large, statewide infrastructure that includes electronic health record (EHR) and administrative claims data to assess the incidence and prevalence of CKDu in Florida. Dr. Hogan will discuss what is known about the data infrastructure focused on agricultural worker surveillance and how that is used to study CKDu in Florida.
