About

There’s going to be a KEEP Healthy Screening on Tuesday, October 18th in Washington, DC at the Department of Education's Potomac Center.

The screening will run from 10am-2pm. We plan on meeting at 9:30am at the site to conduct a brief overview of the KEEP Healthy screening process. It involves conducting a short survey, BMI check, blood pressure check, urinalysis, and a brief consultation with a doctor. The screening will last 4 hours.

What is a KEEP Healthy Check-up?

KEEP Healthy is a public health screening designed for large health fairs, expos, and large employers because it targets the general public who may not be aware of the risk factors for kidney disease. The assessment consists of physical measurements, blood pressure, a risk survey and a consultation with an advanced health professional.
