Providing Education & Early Detection

The Kidney Foundation of the Greater Chattanooga Area is pleased to announce a new program to provide FREE community screenings to detect kidney disease within the greater Chattanooga area.  The PEED program stands for Providing Education & Early Detection and public screenings will accommodate any community member wishing to be tested for kidney disease.

The first PEED screening was held Thursday, May 2, 2013 at Abba’s House in Hixson. Screenings will be held throughout the year with date and location announced to the public.

Screening consists of measuring height, weight, and recording blood pressure. A urine sample, collected on site, will test for abnormal results and cells in the urine. Once the measurements are obtained,a  health care provider will be available to discuss the results.
