Your Kidneys & You

Many people know little about their kidneys and how important they are to overall health, including the 37 million people who have kidney disease. If caught early, kidney disease can be slowed or even stopped. The NKF offers a free presentation call Your Kidneys & You to educate the community on how the kidneys function, risk factors, early detection, testing, treatment strategies and prevention.

If your organization is interested in having a "Your Kidneys & You" presentation or receiving more information, please contact Perry Hall or call 513.961.8105 ext 852. We are also accepting applications for volunteer presenters.
