March is Kidney Health Month and the BC & Yukon Branch has partnered with BC Renal on a public awareness campaign to highlight the fact that you could lose up to 80% of your kidney function and not even know it. It is important for British Columbians to be kidney smart, and when it comes to their kidney health, knowledge is definitely power.www.kidney.ca Kidney Foundation
What is childhood arthritis (CA)? Many people mistakenly think arthritis is just a disease of the elderly, but the statistics tell a different story. About three in 1,000 Canadian children has childhood arthritis (CA), which makes it more common than most chronic childhood diseases. You may have heard of the medical term “juvenile idiopathic arthritis” and wondered what it means. “Idiopathic” simply means “unknown”. This word is used when other illnesses known to cause arthritis have been ruled out as the cause of a child’s arthritis.Volunteer Here: Childhood Arthritis Awareness Month
