Kick off National Kidney Month by taking the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD)s  free Kidney Health Risk Assessment to identify if you’re an adult at risk for chronic kidney disease.

The assessment uses a simple Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation, blood pressure measurement and a short six-question questionnaire to make participants aware of their risk factors for chronic kidney disease.

Participants will receive brief consultations with physicians and dietitians to learn about kidney disease, as well as general nutrition and wellness guidelines.

Individuals not at risk will be given educational materials about maintaining good health, while those at risk will be directed to further screenings and advised to talk to medical professionals. Those at risk are encouraged to follow up with their physician and to maintain regular primary care visits.

Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders and one in eight in Baltimore. Most people affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 25 percent of the 1,229 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.

Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases. For more information, visit www.kidneymd.org.

The B’More Healthy Expo offers FREE health screenings, cooking demonstrations, information, exhibits, workouts, dance performances, gymnastics shows and family activities…something for every age, every interest, everyone! For more information, visit http://www.bmorehealthyexpo.com.

National Kidney Foundation of Maryland KEY Screening

Comptroller of Maryland Treasury Building- 1st Floor Assembly Room 80 Calvert St., Annapolis MD 21401 /  Contact: Jessica Quintilian 443-322-0375

Price: Free

As part of NKF-MD’s mission of early detection and early intervention, this free screening will identify early markers for high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney disease. No appointments are needed for the screening and any adult can participate.

Lasting about 20 minutes, the screening includes blood pressure and weight checks, as well as counseling with a doctor and dietician. Additionally, blood tests may be given to those needing to have their blood sugar and kidney function checked. For more information, call NKF-MD at 443-322-0375 or visit www.kidneymd.org.

Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders. One in three American adults – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime.

Most people affected do not realize it until the condition has progressed. In fact, 25 percent of the 1,229 people screened last year by NKF-MD demonstrated significant results.

Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, NKF-MD is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.

Day Course: Discovering the Peace of Wisdom in Daily Life with Gen Samten Kelsang on on Saturday, March 14  @ 10 am - 4:30pm The problems we face in life, which seem so solid and real, will disappear like last night's bad dream when we apply Buddha's teachings on emptiness, the way things actually exist as opposed to the way they appear. This view of emptiness, the dream-like nature of things, teaches us that we can overcome our fears and gradually become more peaceful, flexible, and creative. In this day course, Gen Samten Kelsang, Resident Teacher of KMC New York, will teach how we can recall and apply these profound teachings throughout our day and transform our life and experiences with wisdom.

A non-linear, impressionistic text tells the story of world very like our own: sea levels are rising, trees are being ravaged, and jazz may be the only thing that can save humanity. Dance On Bones is inspired by and structured around jazz music, riffing off of the folklore of the jazz scenes in St. Petersburg, Russia and New Orleans, Louisiana; creation myths; flooding cities; and current environmental circumstances washing away our shores.
