KidneyMobile Coming Back To BCHD

The KidneyMobile during last year's visit to the Bond County Health Department

The National Kidney Foundation’s KidneyMobile will return to Greenville on Wednesday, June 11. The Bond County Health Department hosted the KidneyMobile last summer and provided services to 63 county residents. Of those 63, 50 were referred to their doctor with potential kidney issues.

Mark Ayers, Public Health Administrator at the Bond County Health Department, told WGEL some of the services available through the KidneyMobile include, “blood pressure, blood sugar, a body mass index, waist circumference, urinalysis, blood draws, if necessary, and each person is able to talk with a doctor or a nurse practitioner about their results. So, it’s a personalized service and I would highly encourage family members to get that person that you have a concern about to us on the 11th of June.”

The KidneyMobile will be at the Bond County Health Department from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on June 11th. Fasting is not required for testing. No appointment is necessary, but you must be 18 or older.
