WCT_300x600In partnership with The National Kidney Foundation, Rice Memorial Hospital  invites you to register for our FREE Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) health screening on Thursday, May 2, 2013 from 10:00AM-4:00PM at the Health and Human Services Building located at 2200 23rd Street NE, Willmar, MN 56201.

This screening is part of the National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Early Evaluation program (KEEP), designed to identify and educate individuals at increased risk for chronic kidney disease. Individuals who have diabetes and/or high blood pressure, plus a family history of kidney failure, are most at risk.

As part of the screening process, participants will complete a health history form, receive physical measurements (height, weight, blood pressure),  provide blood and urine samples and physicians will be on site to review participants results.  It will take about 60 minutes to complete the screening process.

The National Kidney Foundation is dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.

To make an appointment, you can call 651.636.7300,  or 800.596.7943 or visit http://www.kidney.org/site/313/keep_regform.cfm?kID=916. Appointments are on a first come, first served basis.
