IVCH sponsors free kidney, diabetes disease screening at Peru Mall

Illinois Valley Community Hospital, in cooperation with the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois, is sponsoring a free screening for kidney disease and diabetes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 8, in the IVCH room at Peru Mall. Screening appointments can be made by calling IVCH at 815-780-4642. Walk-ins also will be welcome.

The screening will include measurements of blood pressure, blood sugar, body mass index and waist circumference along with a urinalysis and, if necessary, a blood draw. Participants also will get a chance to talk with a health care professional about results.

One in three American adults is at risk for kidney disease, according to the National Kidney Foundation.
