National Kidney Foundation: KEEP Healthy Kidney Screening

For November’s Diabetes Month, join the National Kidney Foundation from 9am-2 pm for a free kidney screening for at-risk invididuals

If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, a family history of kidney failure, or are over the age of 60, you are at risk and should have your kidneys checked.

All KEEP Healthy participants will answer a brief health-risk survey and have their height, weight, and blood pressure measured. At-risk individuals will have their kidney health checked through a simple, onsite, urine test. This test can identify protein in the urine, often the first sign of kidney disease.

Free educational materials will be provided, and a medical professional will review results and answer questions from participants.

Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
