Health Screenings and Kidney Education

DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc., a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, launches the DaVita Health Tour in California. The tour will visit 18 California communities, from Sacramento to San Diego, this April and May to provide free health screenings and kidney education.

Californians can take advantage of free diabetes screenings, health screenings, kidney education and other health resources in DaVita’s mobile clinic at convenient locations, right in their communities.

The mobile health clinic will include:

  • Diabetes screenings, including a finger-stick glucose test
  • Biometrics, including blood pressure, height/weight/waist measurement and Body Mass Index (BMI) testing
  • Personal and confidential patient results review

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 37 million U.S. adults 20 years and older – more than 15% of the adult population – have CKD, which is the ninth leading cause of death in the U.S. One in three adults is at risk for developing CKD.

Risk factors include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Family history of kidney disease
  • Age of 55 or older

“DaVita is dedicated to helping improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve,” said Allen R. Nissenson, M.D., FACP, chief medical officer for DaVita Kidney Care. “The DaVita Health Tour gives Californians access to free diabetes and blood pressure testing, which is critical to help identify individuals who may have or be at risk for developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) since diabetes and high blood pressure are two of the main causes. CKD is often symptomless in its early stages, so this testing is essential to help catch the disease early on, when it may be possible to slow down the progression of kidney disease or stop it altogether.”



The Educational landscape is changing dynamically. The new generation of students thus faces the daunting task to choose an institution that would guide them towards a lucrative career.
