More than 100 golfers hit the links for the Jason David’s Corner Foundation Fourth Celebrity Golf Classic. Former NFL defensive back, Jason David hosted the event in memory of his beloved cousin Segun “Shay” Ukome Moruka, who passed away from nephritis kidney disease in 2007. Proceeds from the golf classic will benefit the nephrology department at Kaiser Permanente in Baldwin Park.
This year marked the first time the foundation offered free kidney disease prescreening to the community. The prescreening consisted of basic health questionnaire, height, weight, and blood pressure measurements. Individuals identified in need of a full screening will be contacted and referred for a Free Kidney Disease Screening Day in Fall of 2012.
