Kidney Screening Day, sponsored by the Stroger Hospital’s Department of Nephrology and the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois.

All participants will have the opportunity to meet privately with a qualified healthcare provider to review their results.

More than 20 million Americans – one in nine adults – have chronic kidney disease and don’t even know it. Left untreated, chronic kidney disease may ultimately lead to kidney failure, requiring a transplant or dialysis for survival. Come to our Kidney Screening Day!
