Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

In the United States, Blacks are at higher risk of morbidity and mortality associated with chronic kidney diseases compared to Whites. While only 13% of Americans are Black, 32% of kidney failures occur among Blacks. This problem becomes even more tragic given lower access of Blacks to kidney transplantation.
