Health is in Style

Trust your barber with your hair and your health.
Health is in Style is a collaboration of barbers and stylists and the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois to educate the African-Amerian community about the risks of kidney disease and to offer free health screenings.


Give the Gift of Education

Kidney disease is in crisis. More than 1 million people in Illinois are living with kidney disease and as many as 900,000 of them don’t know they have it. It’s one of the fastest growing public health problems in the U.S. and we need your support!

Please consider donating to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois’ patient programs. Every dollar makes a difference and helps someone in need!

With your support, we will expand Living with Kidney Disease and Transplantation / Viviendo con Enfermedad Renal y Trasplantación. This program is for people affected by or at risk for kidney disease, individuals on dialysis, people waiting for a transplant, and those who have received a transplant, as well as their family members and caregivers. Experts share information on medications and their side effects, insurance options and financial assistance, emotional effects of living with kidney disease, the transplant process and more.


Share Your Story

We're asking people living with kidney disease, caregivers, dialysis patients, recipients, donors and more to participate in our Story Sharing Project.  Help give others hope by sharing your story and advice.

Stories will be featured on our website, on our Facebook or Twitter pages and even in marketing materials.  Share your story now!
