Prior event volunteer experience is preferred but not required.
Health Fairs and ScreeningsVolunteers are needed to participate in community-wide health events throughout the year to educate those at risk for kidney disease. Individuals can assist by distributing literature and educating the public on the Foundation's programs and services. Healthcare professionals are also needed to assist in conducting blood pressure screenings.
Share Your StoryPersonal stories and experiences are a great way for others to learn about Chronic Kidney Disease and related disorders. Share your story so that someone else can learn about dialysis or transplantation. If you have utilized our services or are connected to the KFO, let us know so we can highlight your story and teach others about the Foundation.
