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 13, 2014.

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 many activities around the islands during the month of March including:

  • Free comprehensive kidney screening on Friday, March 21st at Ala Moana Hotel.  Email kim@kidneyhi.org for more details
  • World Kidney Day, Thursday, March 13th at 5:00pm at Ala Moana Center Stage, featuring performances by the renowned Moanalua High School Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble as well as performances by Frank Uehara, "Hawai'i's Pakini Master" and living kidney donor and Keith Haugen
