Kidney Early Evaluation Program to be held at Wisconsin Black Historical Society
Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and the main reason people need dialysis to live.
If you are an African American adult, you know that youâ€™re at-risk!
So get screened! If you, a friend or family member have high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of those conditions, take an hour this Saturday and stop by the Wisconsin Black Historical Society, 2620 W Center St, Milwaukee for the FREE KEEP (Kidney Early Evaluation Program) screening between 9:00am – 12:15pm.
You can also make an appointment; just call 262-821-0705. Walk-ins are welcome for any woman or man who is 18 and older.
The National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin (NKFW) is proud to offer this screening in recognition of African American History Month. We want to spread awareness about diabetes, blood pressure and kidneys.
