37 Million Americans are affected by kidney disease and many of them don’t even know it. The National Kidney Foundation of Florida wants to challenge everyone to “Get to Know Your Kidneys”.
“Your Kidneys and You” is a health education program designed to raise awareness among the general public about how the kidneys function, the risk factors for kidney disease, and how to protect the kidneys.
