A note from your Chapter Coordinator:

Save Mar. 28 for What’s New in PKD: A Day of PKD Learning, a half-day live video conference hosted by the PKD Foundation. It will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 pm.  We will only have a 15 minute break for lunch, so bring a sack lunch with you. Coffee, tea, and lemonade will be provided. We will be able to ask the presenters questions by computer and they will answer them live right after each session. We have really enjoyed the conferences we have participated in the past, so plan to take advantage of this opportunity to hear from the experts. The PKD Foundation is using this method to make critical information available to a broad range of people, especially those who may not
be able to attend national conferences.
