KidneyMobile coming to IVCH June 14

PERU – Free screenings for chronic kidney disease will be available when the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois’ KidneyMobile comes to Illinois Valley Community Hospital June 14 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The screenings, which will be held in IVCH Conference Room A, include blood pressure, blood sugar, weight and body mass index checks. A urine sample will also be taken. People who have diabetes may be asked to have blood drawn (at no charge) depending upon their blood sugar readings. IVCH nurses will be available for counseling about what the test results mean.

The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois says the KidneyMobile’s mission is to educate high-risk individuals on kidney disease prevention and provide educational information for successfully managing diabetes and hypertension — the two leading causes of kidney disease.

Pre-registration before visiting the KidneyMobile is requested by calling 815-780-3337.
