The Power of Community

By Welltok Marketing

Welltok is proud to work with Aetna Innovation Labs and the National Kidney Foundation to launch a pilot program aimed at supporting members with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Aetna is inviting eligble members with CKD to join an online community where they can interact with fellow CKD peers who have been specially trained by the National Kidney Foundation to be mentors.

Welltok’s CaféWell health optimization platform hosts a secure community where members can ask questions and provide confidential support to each other in a safe, supportive community. They will also be able to learn more about coping with kidney disease, diet and nutrition, treatment options and living well.

According to the National Kidney Foundation, recent research indicates that people with kidney disease often cope better when they interact with peers with whom they strongly identify with.

“For CKD and other chronic conditions, we have seen that a secure and supportive community has the power to help members gain a positive outlook and take control of their health” - Scott Rotermund, co-founder of Welltok.
