BESSEMER, Ala (WIAT) — One in three Americans are at risk for kidney disease. Here in Alabama, more than 11 thousand people have kidney failure.
Promoting awareness of the illness was the goal of yesterday’s “Kidney Action Day” in Bessemer.
CBS 42’s Sherri Jackson spent yesterday in the community to help people learn how to keep themselves healthy and to learn more about the illness.
The event featured free medical screenings, interactive fitness sessions, and healthy cooking demonstrations.
The American Kidney Fund sponsored the sessions.
