National Kidney Month
Did You Know?

March is National Kidney Month, a time for raising awareness about kidney health and disease in the United States. March 9, 2017, was World Kidney Day. Both are intended to promote awareness of kidney disease and the importance of prevention and early detection. Each year World Kidney Day highlights a particular theme. In 2017, the theme is "Kidney Disease and Obesity: Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Kidneys.

Held every year on the second Thursday in March, World Kidney Day is an awareness day that brings global attention to the importance of kidney health. The day aims to highlight the risk factors that can lead to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Water is essential for the kidneys to function. The leading cause of kidney stones is a lack of water; they are commonly reported in people who do not drink the recommended daily amount of water. As well as complicating UTIs, research has suggested that kidney stones also increase the risk of chronic kidney disease.

In recognition of National Kidney Month, students and teachers from the Fashion Marketing program are participating in a lesson that focuses on the benefits of drinking water and how the kidney functions.  Each participant will track his/her water intake and reveal results to the class.
