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-American community about the risks of kidney disease and to offer free health screenings. 

  • African-Americans are at increased risk of developing chronic kidney disease.
  • The African-American population has higher rates of diabetes and high blood pressure, the two leading causes of kidney disease.
  • 1 in 3 African-Americas has high blood pressure.

Could you be at risk for chronic kidney disease?

We can help!

The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois offers free health screenings. The KidneyMobile program tests for diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease. Results are provided same-day, and you'll meet with a health care professional who will explain the results and next steps.
