About The Kidney TRUST

The Kidney TRUST’s free rapid-screening program, which has reached nearly 15,000 people since the program was launched in October 2007, identifies individuals who have signs of kidney impairment. Along with learning their screening results onsite, participants benefit from a personal education session to explain their results and any individual risk factors, receive materials that offer additional education about CKD and its prevention, and are encouraged to seek medical follow-up as appropriate. The TRUST also focuses on the unmet needs of people who have CKD through its Financial Assistance program (FAP) for people on dialysis. The FAP has awarded more than 1,000 grants totaling nearly $2.2 million in the last two years.  Visit for more information.
