National Kidney Foundation Offers Free Kidney Check-Up

(Overland Park, KS) February 7, 2014- The National Kidney Foundation is offering a free kidney risk factor screening through its KEEP Healthy program on March 14th at the YMCA in Blue Springs, MO from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m.

KEEP Healthy participants will answer a brief health risk survey and have their height, weight and blood pressure measured. Free educational materials will be provided and a medical professional will be on site to review results and take questions from participants.

One in nine Americans has kidney disease and most don’t know it. Anyone who is at risk – those with diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney failure – is encouraged to attend. To register for KEEP Healthy, contact the National Kidney Foundation at 913-262-1551 or www.kidney.org.

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families and tens of millions of Americans at risk.
