Chinese Kidneys

Bet that got your attention, huh? This is kind of old news, but the Northwest Kidney Centers just came out with their newsletter, Output, talking about National Kidney Month (in March) and the work they did here at CISC (see page 2).

Over 40 seniors attended a workshop on kidney health and information at the International Family Center-Seattle. Did you know that both Asian Pacific Americans and older adults are at increased risk for kidney disease? And many people with kidney disease don't even know they have it.

Find out if you are at risk but taking this quiz. To learn more about how your kidney works, check out this animated tutorial. By the way, that's Gov. Gregoire meeting with Sidney the Kidney up there...
