The American Kidney Fund today announced the launch of its kidney disease education and screening program in New York City.

New York (Vocus) July 31, 2008 -- The American Kidney Fund today announced the launch of its www.kidneyfund.org [kidney disease] education and screening program in New York City.

Since 2004, the American Kidney Fund's MIKE program has provided free kidney disease screenings to nearly 20,000 people in Atlanta, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. The program also has provided screenings at the annual D-FERG Harlem Family Health Fair in New York City for a number of years.

"By expanding the MIKE program to New York City on a year-round, long-term basis, we hope to bring awareness of kidney disease to thousands of New Yorkers who are at risk and who may not know it," said LaVarne A. Burton, President and CEO of the American Kidney Fund.

In New York City, the American Kidney Fund's MIKE program will work in partnership with North General Hospital in Harlem. North General Hospital is providing laboratory services for the screenings, as well as appropriate follow-up to participants whose results indicate they are at high risk for kidney disease.
