Public Education

Kidney Health Alliance of Kentucky is committed to helping increase awareness of kidney disease. This is accomplished through the following programs:

Sidney the Kidney Classroom Education Program

Sidney and trained volunteers visit classrooms and school and civic events to share basic kidney awareness education.

Speaking Engagements

Speakers are provided to local churches, civic organizations and schools to share information about kidney disease, the importance of early detection and organ donation.

Free Kidney Health Screening

KHAKY volunteers are available for kidney disease screenings at health fairs, church and civic events. These screenings include a 10 point urinalysis. Results are provided within minutes.

O’Meara Kidney Health Screening

Named after a KHAKY volunteer who lost his battle with kidney disease, this program offers employers an employee screening on site at the workplace. The screening includes a blood pressure check and 10 point urinalysis. Confidential results are provided to the employee at the screening. Employers are asked to make a donation for each employee screened to help offset the cost of the screening.
