On 14 March 2019, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Malaysia organised the NKF Open Day in conjunction with World Kidney Day 2019 which promoted “Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere”.
The programme commenced with one hour of Bollywood Fitness Dance instructed by Mr Kirenjit Singh, the Bhangra Dance Master to unleash the adrenalin rush of the participants.
Free health screening was provided for members of the public to keep track of their blood pressure, blood glucose and blood cholesterol level with counselling given by NKF’s health professionals.
In conjunction with World Kidney Day that is celebrated globally on the second Thursday in March, we would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness of preventive measures in avoiding kidney disease by maintaining kidney health.
Turning 50 years old this year, NKF will commemorate its momentous journey with a lineup of celebratory events, including the NKF Glow Run which will take place on 20 July 2019, Saturday at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS). Aside from the unique glow in the dark fun run, the event aims to convey an educational message and increase public awareness on kidney disease.
