National Kidney Foundation of Maryland KEY Screening
As part of NKF-MD’s mission of early detection and early intervention, this KEY (Kidneys: Evaluate Yours) health screening will identify early markers for high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. No appointments are needed for the screening and any adult can participate. Lasting about 20 minutes, the screening includes a blood test, as well as blood pressure and weight checks.
Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, NKF-MD is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
One out of every nine Americans has or will develop chronic kidney disease, and most affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 145 of the 568 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.
