Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 12, 2016
On Tuesday, February 2nd, an educational roadshow that will make stops in cities across the country, kicked off in Phoenix. It launched the national expansion of a movement called “1in9.” Chronic kidney disease affects 26 million Americans; that is 1 in every 9 adults, and most don’t even realize it. The goal is to create hope and change the trajectory of kidney disease.
Free of charge, attendees of the 1in9 Roadshow will learn about kidney disease prevention, awareness, treatments, and health screenings.
The American Academy and Board of Regenerative Medicine (AABRM) is partnering with this project and will share news on innovative advancements for kidney disease and related diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The 1in9 movement also includes a documentary that will chronicle Raymond Scott’s 18-year journey, from kidney failure starting at the age of 29 to and through his competition at the 10th anniversary of Dancing with the Stars, AZ benefitting the National Kidney Foundation of AZ and follow Raymond and his wife Analyn as they travel and speak to groups across the United States.
1in9 Founder Analyn Scott shared, “1in9 is honored and proud to partner with the AABRM to highlight and support the great work they are doing and educate the public on what the future holds in the fight against kidney disease.”
“The American Academy and Board of Regenerative Medicine strongly supports 1in9’s efforts to raise awareness and promote action related to chronic kidney disease.
