Chapter meetings are another opportunity for you to have your questions and concerns about PKD addressed. We will do our best to provide you with answers or direct you to someone that can assist you. Everyone is welcome! 

Although the Chicago Chapter does not have any meetings planned at this time, we would still love to hear from you! If you have any questions concerning support meetings, please email our Volunteer Chapter Coordinators at chicagochapter@pkdcure.org.
