The National Kidney Foundation is offering a free kidney screening through its KEEP Healthy program on Thursday March 30th from 3-7:30 pm at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church (3355 N. 4th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55412). All KEEP Healthy participants will answera brief health-risk survey and have their height, weight and blood pressure measured.
At-risk individuals will have their kidney health checked through a simple, onsite, ACR urine test. The ACR test can identify protein in the urine, which is often the first sign of kidney disease. Free educational materials will be provided and a medical professional will review results and answer questions from participants.
