Ask the Doctor
Questions about kidney disease? Risk factors? Signs and symptoms? Are you concerned about yourself, a friend or family member? Ask Dr. Spry.
We are always looking for public buildings (neighborhood centers, churches, adult activity centers, VFW halls, gymnasiums, etc.) that have room for about 150 people.
During our KEEP screenings, we “create” stations for participants to go to each test, so it is important that the building have enough space to accommodate these stations as well as public restrooms. We also need the use of approximately 13 tables and 65 chairs.
To be considered a suitable KEEP venue it must:
NOTE: A KEEP screening must be a “stand alone” event and cannot take place in conjunction with another organization’s event (i.e. health fair, health Expo, etc.) A Kidney Health Risk Assessment (KHRA) is provided by NKF for large health events.
We are always looking for both technical volunteers (local nephrologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, phlebotomists and medical assistants and technicians) and general volunteers (dieticians, social workers and lay persons) willing to donate a few hours of their time for a KEEP screening held in their area.
Training is provided on-site. Volunteers get a “Love Your Kidneys” t-shirt and an “experience letter” that documents their contributions. Plus, there’s an opportunity to network and meet awesome people just like yourself.
As our local contact person you would be responsible for helping to locate an adequate venue, find volunteers, promote the event around town, and take phone reservations to pre-register KEEP participants.
