One of the most effective ways that we fight kidney disease together is through NKF's community-based KEEP Healthy program, which screens participants around the country for kidney disease. You can help to administer kidney health checks in your area and reach more Americans at-risk. Activities may include: Supporting the registration and greeting process, aiding participants in completion of health surveys, taking Body Mass Index (BMI), height, weight, blood pressure and other readings to assess risk.
i. Body Mass Index (BMI): Volunteers take participants height and weight and find their BMI. Volunteers at this station can educate participants about link between obesity and developing Type 2 diabetes, which can damage the kidneys.
