Raenali Publications® is a leading provider of innovative, physician-directed patient education in the field of nephrology, most notably, the chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4 workshop series, “My Kidneys. My Options. My Life.TM” The company’s vision is to deliver educational products and solutions to nephrology practices that help improve patient outcomes.


The company was founded by Sandra M. Lauriat, M.D., F.A.C.P., a board certified internal medicine physician and nephrologist with more than two decades of experience empowering CKD patients with knowledge, so they can live happy, healthy lives with kidney disease.


Dr. Lauriat was inspired to develop CKD patient education after helping a family member navigate life with a chronic illness. Through that experience, Dr. Lauriat realized the important role education plays in managing long-term health issues. She also knew her CKD patients could benefit if they were educated about their disease, especially if they were allowed quality, one-on-one time with a physician educator.


As a physician, Dr. Lauriat was also motivated to create successful CKD educational programs that streamlined the teaching process for the physician, while providing opportunities to increase practice revenue. 

Empowering workshops — inspired by a personal quest for knowledge


Raenali Publications® is your one-stop shop for CKD patient education with proven results. Our creative, one-of-a-kind programs were designed to be easy to implement, and we also package these educational solutions—available for every stage of CKD—in an easy to deliver format. In particular, the “My Kidneys. My Options. My Life.TM” CKD stage 4 workshop series offers physicians the tools they need to:

  • Increase in-home dialysis (both home hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis).
  • Decrease catheter rate at dialysis initiation.
  • Give patients hope.
  • Empower patients to make informed decisions.
