March is National Kidney Month

This month is a great time to take action to help prevent kidney disease. Whether you attend a free kidney health screening or educational workshop, or just learn more about how to stay healthy and prevent kidney disease, you can make a difference in your own life and those of the people you care about.

Pair Up with a friend or a loved one for a free American Kidney Fund kidney screening in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and select other locations nationwide. If there's no screening event close to you, download this guide for information about the simple tests your doctor can run to check your kidney function at your next appointment.

Download and share our fact sheets on diabetes and high blood pressure, the two leading causes of kidney disease. Keeping these conditions under control can help prevent kidney disease.

Join the American Kidney Fund’s Advocacy Network. Pair Up with us to increase awareness of kidney disease among policymakers, and we’ll provide you with regular updates about important issues related to chronic kidney disease. Watch this video to learn more about being an AKF Advocate.
