Dr Anand is interested in improving care for patients with kidney disease living in low-resource settings and using practical tools. She has active projects in India and Sri Lanka. She is also involved with the Exercise is Medicine initiative, with an active pilot clinical trial in adapting the intervention for patients with advanced kidney disease.
Exercise is Medicine for Patients With CKD
The investigators plan to integrate and tailor the existing Exercise is Medicine framework,
an evidence-based multi-level intervention program developed by the American Society of
Sports Medicine, for the care of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease. In this pilot
randomized control trial, investigators will compare the effects and feasibility of two
intervention arms designed to start and maintain physical activity in this high-risk
population (Group 1: physical activity assessment, brief counseling session + physical
activity wearable versus Group 2: Group 1 intervention components + referral to a free,
community-based, EIM practitioner led group exercise program).
