One in nine American adults has chronic kidney disease. Many don't even know it until it is too late and they find themselves in an emergency room. The Arizona Kidney Foundation is offering a free kidney health clinic to help identify early signs of kidney disease.

If you are 18 years or older and have a family member with diabetes, high blood pressure or chronic kidney disease, or if you have high blood pressure or diabetes, the Arizona Kidney Foundation encourages you to participate in this free health screening.

The K.E.E.P. screening will include the following free services: over $300 worth of free lab work including blood pressure screening, blood, glucose and urine tests, cholesterol level screening plus height and weight measurements.

Nurses and medical assistants will perform all tests. Private consultations with the doctors, nurses and dieticians will be possible. A comprehensive report will be mailed to each participant.

To schedule K.E.E.P. screenings in your neighborhood, please call Ruthann at (602) 840-1644, extension 220.

The Arizona Kidney Foundation is located at 4203 E. Indian School Road, Suite 140 in Phoenix. This K.E.E.P. is funded as a result of financial support from BHHS Legacy Foundation which is an Arizona charitable organization whose philanthropic mission is to enhance the quality of life and health of those it serves
