Presented on World Kidney Day by The Kidney Foundation of Canada, this webinar is a free informational session for anyone interested in learning more about their kidney health.

Did you know that 1 in 10 Canadians has kidney disease? Because there are often no symptoms until kidney disease is advanced, many people aren’t aware they have the disease until they’ve already lost most of their kidney function. That’s why it’s so important to know the risk factors for kidney disease and what you can do.

At this webinar find out if you are at risk. You will learn what kidneys do, the major causes and risk factors, how to recognize early warning signs, and what you can do to keep your kidneys healthy.

Hosted by the Saskatchewan and Southern Alberta branches of The Kidney Foundation of Canada.
