NKTI Pediatric Nephro Dept joins WKD'14

NKTI Pediatric Nephro Dept joins WKD'14

The National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Department of Pediatric Nephrology, spearheaded by the Department Chair, Dr. Ofelia R. De Leon, actively joined the worldwide celebration of the World Kidney Day last March 13, 2014, with this year's theme, “Kidneys Age, Just Like You”. Two pediatric nephrology fellows-in-training, namely, Dr. Elmer Kent A. Lopez and Dr. Ma. Rowena O. Cuya, together with Ms. Lorelie Palileo, department secretary, conducted a Preventive Nephrology Lecture to 50 Grade V pupils of Piñahan Elementary School, Piñahan, Quezon City on March 18, 2014. Blood pressure and urinalysis screening using dipstick followed after the forum.

From the screening, two pupils showed hematuria and one with proteinuria. All children were normotensive. The NKTI team focused on teaching the important pearls on kidney health care, and emphasized the main message of the celebration which is “Start the day with a glass of water”. Indeed, the activity was a huge success with the warm support of the school principal, Mr. Cesar B. Retes, and his staff.
