The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana will run its annual Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) for the Fort Wayne Hispanic and minority Population on March 20PthP. The event will focus on providing education and medical services for those who attend. Kidney disease affects 1 in 8 American Adults, but early detection can help prevent the progression of this disease. The event will be offered to a portion of our population that does not have easy access to these medical tests and education. The tasks that are required will include translation of material, help in spreading the word throughout the Hispanic Community, event organization, and day of event activities. The goal is to create a service learning opportunity to gain experience in the field I will enter after college. Service learning provides an individual with engagement on community service activities with intentional academic goals for reflection that connect with an individual’s academic discipline.
