The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 37 million US adults aged 20 years and older – more than 15 percent of the adult population – have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is the ninth leading cause of death in the US. One in seven US adults has CKD and may not know it because there are no signs and one in three adults is at risk for developing CKD.

On April 23rd, DaVita Kidney Care will launch a California bus tour that will visit 18 California communities from Sacramento to San Diego this April and May to provide free health screenings and kidney care education.  Area Californians can take advantage of free diabetes screenings, biometric screenings, kidney care education and other health resources in DaVita’s mobile clinic at convenient locations, right in their communities.

Did you know?

  • African Americans are 3.5 times more likely to have kidney disease
  • Hispanics are 1.5 times more likely to have kidney disease
  • Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney disease

On April 25, Mandy Hale is available to you and your listeners to talk about the bus tour and how patients can get free screenings, biometric testing and get tips on how to search for and locate high-quality facilities.
