Can-SOLVE CKD Webinar Series: “Identifying diabetes and CKD in Indigenous communities”


Add to calendar

A public health intervention led by Dr. Paul Komenda will introduce point-of-care testing for diabetes and chronic kidney disease in rural and remote communities.


Wednesday, September 27

4:00 p.m. PDT / 7:00 p.m. EDT

Using mobile lab equipment, screening teams will travel to Indigenous communities across five provinces and test for CKD and its risk factors, including diabetes and high blood pressure. This information will be used to determine an individual’s risk of CKD, and each person will receive a treatment plan that is tailored to their risk.
