Twenty-six million American adults have kidney disease. Many don’t know it. The Kidney Foundation of Chattanooga exists to stop the disease from progressing in the city by conducting free kidney screenings. In 2013, the organization raised funding through Causeway to secure testing materials and other costs to offer the screenings free of charge. Local nephrologists, nurses, and the Kidney Foundation are committed to educating Chattanoogans on kidney health and improving quality of life in the city.
