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.

Presented by Clifford Miles, M.D., UNOS Kidney Transplantation Committee Region 8 Representative; Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine; Transplant Nephrologist, University of Nebraska Medical Center
On Dec. 4, 2014, the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) implemented a new system for allocating deceased donor kidneys to those on the transplant waiting list. Questions have come in asking how the new Kidney Allocation System (KAS) will affect PKD patients. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Clifford Miles, UNOS Kidney Transplantation Committee Region 8 representative, where he answers your questions, both pre-submitted and submitted in real time, during the webinar.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
