The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) is designed to identify and educate people at risk - those with diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney disease. KEEP evaluations will be performed, for free, this Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Pueblo County Conference Room, 1001 N. Santa Fe Ave. Screenings will take place 9 am - 12:30 pm.
"We know that if we start early with education, detection and if necessary, medical intervention, we can often postpone the onset of kidney disease or kidney failure," said Executive Director Judy Norman.
The screening will consist of health risk appraisal, blood pressure measurement, blood and urine tests.
