The free assessment from the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland
Aug. 20, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pilgrim Temple Church (1807 Bloomingdale Road, Baltimore, MD  21216).

The free assessment from the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) uses a simple Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation, blood pressure measurement and a short questionnaire to make participants aware of their risk factors for chronic kidney disease.

Participants will receive brief consultations with physicians and dietitians to learn about kidney disease, as well as general nutrition and wellness guidelines.

Individuals not at risk will be given educational materials about maintaining good health, while those at risk will be directed to further screenings and advised to talk to medical professionals. Those at risk are encouraged to follow up with their physician and to maintain regular primary care visits.

Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders and one in eight in Baltimore. One in three American adults – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime.

For information about this KHRA event or NKF-MD’s other KHRA events and kidney screenings throughout Maryland and Delaware, call 410.494.8545 or visit www.kidneymd.org

Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of Virginia and West Virginia NKF-MD is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.
