The NKFI’s KidneyMobile has provided over 50,000 free screenings by traveling into high-risk communities to identify chronic kidney disease and its precursors. There will be a week’s worth of events coming to the region later this month, including kidney and diabetes screenings at Alton’s Scott Bibb Center June 25th from noon – 4pm.


Kidney disease is a silent disease, according to healthcare experts, and can cause a lot of damage before a patient knows he or she has it.


Pre-registration is advised, and you must be 18 or older to get screened. To do so, call 312-321-1500, or follow the link below. There will also be KidneyMobile events in Fairmont City, East St. Louis, Belleville, and Venice that week.
