Health Fairs / Presentations

    KFNWO is the area's leading advocacy and support system for individuals living with chronic kidney disease, their families, and physicians. Our goal is to ease the burden both emotionally and financially, for those living with the disease as we increase prevention through public education.

    Through a compassionate and caring team of staff and volunteers, KFNWO works to be the trusted ally in this region's daily fight with Kidney Disease.

    The Kidney Foundation of Northwest Ohio (KFNWO) participates in several health fairs throughout Northwest Ohio. We educate awareness, early intervention and prevention of kidney disease.

How can I get involved?

    We need both health professional and non-health professional volunteers that represent all population groups. Volunteers may distribute brochures and talk to health fair visitors about kidney disease, and the KFNWO. Also, at some of the fairs we perform blood pressure checks using an automatic inflatable cuff and a machine that displays blood pressure results. We can provide training at our office on the brochures and how to perform and interpret the blood pressure checks.

    If you are interested in being trained as a volunteer for a health fair in your area or if you are interested in having a KFNWO representative speak to your group or exhibit at an upcoming health fair, please email us at administrativeassistant@kfnwo.org.
