Free kidney health screenings in Anchorage

The Alaska Kidney Patients Assoc. is offering free kidney health screenings in November for people at increased risk for kidney disease, meaning people with diabetes, high blood pressure, or immediate family members with kidney disease.

To participate, contact the Alaska Kidney Patients Association, and they’ll arrange for you to get your lab work done at a local lab, free of charge. After you’ve completed the lab work, an appointment will be made on Saturday, Nov. 21, to go over the results with a medical professional, who will be able to answer your questions.
