March is National Kidney Month, and National Kidney Foundation of Arizona is providing Arizonans with multiple resources from which to learn, participate, and educate themselves on kidney health.

National Kidney Month is the perfect time for Arizonans to make themselves aware of their kidney health. In addition to its direct patient aid programs, NKF AZ also holds several wonderful community events around March. Most appropriately within National Kidney Month will be a K.E.E.P (Kidney Early Evaluation Program) screening, NKF AZ's free community health screenings. The event, offered on March 26, is open to the public by RSVP and will be held at the Nishkam Seva Gurdwara Sahib Temple in Glendale. Also held around March will be the NKF Kidney Walk on Saturday, April 2, at Chase Field. This wonderful community event provides the opportunity for patients, families, community members and volunteers to come together in support of CKD patients within Arizona.

For more on Chronic Kidney Disease, these upcoming community events, or information on the programs and mission of National Kidney Foundation of Arizona, please visit or call (602) 840-1644.
