Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucsonans also joining together Sunday to raise awareness about chronic kidney disease.

Dialysis Clinic Incorporated organized a health and wellness fair, teaching people all about kidney friendly cuisine, and exercises.

"The idea here was to promote health and wellness for kidney patients and, on the wellness side, one of the things we wanted to do was promote exercise and not just going to a gym, so we have an exercise zone set up," said Lee Cauble from the Desert Dialysis Center.

One in nine Tucsonans will be affected by kidney disease in their lifetime.
