#PKDAwarenessDay

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) affects thousands in the United States and millions worldwide – and yet, many people have never heard of it. Together, we can change this.

 

Thursday, Sept. 4, is Polycystic Kidney Disease Awareness Day. Our focus for the day will be on social media so we're calling it #PKDAwarenessDay. The day will be devoted to raising awareness of this life-threatening, genetic disease. The more people know about PKD, the closer we can get to treatments and a cure. Together, we can raise awareness and end PKD.
