On July 29th the Lebanon Kidney Counselors gathered at Rucker Stewart Middle School in collaboration with the Sumner County Chapter of the NAACP to host a Health Fair focusing on kidney disease, the causes of this disease and preventative healthcare for the same.
The team set up stations as follows: blood pressure screening; Hemodialysis machine; Peritoneal Dialysis with the belly; Nutrition & Dietary education, Blood Glucose monitoring; Depression screening; Social Services, and Cardiac health. Dr. Morris with his staff from the MooreLife Urgent Care Clinic in Gallatin, TN was also onsite and provided information regarding health care during our lunch and learn session.
The participants were very appreciative and extended their heartfelt gratitude for the service to the community.
We were excited and encouraged to provide this community service and look forward to more opportunities to do the same in the surrounding counties.
