Time: 11:40 am

33% of adults in the United States are at risk for kidney disease. That’s 1 in every 3 people. Let that number sink in for a minute. It’s huge. But while the magnitude of that number is very apparent, when you really stop and consider it, it’s lost on most people. To shed light on the potential prevalence of this disease and the huge percentage of people who might be at risk, we'll ask people, “Are You the 33%?” in our Kidney Risk Campaign™. We are asking for your help in raising awareness about kidney disease and changing these numbers. Invite friends and family to take our one-minute Kidney Risk Quiz to see if they are at risk for developing kidney disease. Use our toolkit to spread the word! #MinuteForYourKidneys Visit #MinuteForYourKidneys
