Day two in observance of World Kidney!
On day two, Wednesday, March 15, in observance of World Kidney Day, the Club again partnered with the Medical Benefits Scheme, the Antigua and Barbuda Diabetes association, the Renal Society and Monochrome by hosting a Chronic Kidney Health Screening.
Patients for this screening were pre-selected based on risk. The screening aims to continue to educate on the effects of diabetes on kidney health.
The screening also included blood pressure and blood sugar checks, height, weight, BMI and nutrition counselling.
We remain committed to encouraging individuals to know and monitor their numbers and choosing a lifestyle that will be beneficial for good kidney health.
The Club wishes to thank the doctors, the nurses and other health professionals and partners for making the event a success.
