All 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 review results and answer questions from participants.

One in nine Americans has kidney disease and most don’t know it. 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.

To register for KEEP Healthy, contact the National Kidney Foundation at (440-667-6334) or emailing Josh Womack at josh.womack@kidney.org.

Urine strips and accessories for KEEP Healthy are provided by Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, Inc. and Quantimetrix Corporation.
