BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Nov. 5, 2009 – According to the National Kidney
Foundation, 26 million American adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD)
and millions of others are at increased risk. However, early detection
can limit the progression of kidney disease toward kidney failure. To
provide more information about this prevalent disease, Southeast Georgia
Health System is presenting the seminar Chronic Kidney Disease. This free

the causes and symptoms of CKD and what can be done to lower your risks
and keep this disease under control.
Grubb graduated from Auburn University before earning his medical degree
from the University of Alabama School of Medicine. He completed his residency
at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Grubb is board certified
in internal medicine, nephrology and critical care medicine and currently
serves as the secretary/treasurer of the medical staff at the Health System’s
