World Kidney Day
As most of us know, it is easy to take for granted those we love--especially the ones who show their love in quiet, daily acts of support that enable us to focus on our busy lives. It's just as easy, and risky, for people to take their health for granted--especially kidney health. March is National Kidney Month and World Kidney Day is March 14, 2013.
The National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii encourages Americans to mark these occasions by considering some of the many ways their kidneys quietly support their health day-to-day (filtering their blood, controlling blood pressure, supporting healthy bones) and how much their health will suffer if they develop chronic kidney disease.
Join us for one of our free events during March as we work to raise awareness about Chronic Kidney Disease
- Bowling Fundraiser at Kaneohe Marine Base K Bay Bowling Alley
- Free Comprehensive Kidney Screening
- Free Health Fair at the Hawaii State Capital
If you have one or more of the following risk factors, the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii suggests you talk to your doctor about being screened for kidney disease or call us at 589-5903 or view our calendar for more information on upcoming free kidney screenings.
