National Kidney Foundation of Maryland KEY Screening

Start Date: Mar. 05, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM

301-707-7473 mclark@kidneymd.org Allegany County Health Department – Community Room 12501 Willowbrook Road, Cumberland, MD 21502 www.kidneymd.org As part of NKF-MD’s mission of early detection and early intervention, this KEY (Kidneys: Evaluate Yours) screening will identify early markers for high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. No appointments are needed for the screening and any adult can participate. Lasting about 20 minutes, the screening includes a blood test, as well as blood pressure and weight checks. One out of every nine Americans has or will develop chronic kidney disease, and most affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 151 of the 550 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results. Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, NKF-MD is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
