Presented by Howard R. Winokuer, Ph.D.
Dealing with the reality of PKD is a very difficult situation. It is challenging to know how to talk to your children, even young adults, about PKD. As a result of attending this webinar, you will understand how to talk with your teen or young adult about PKD. Our presenter for this webinar is Howard R. Winokuer, Ph.D. Fran Towey, Jr., and his daughter Katie will also join us to share their story of being diagnosed with PKD as a teen.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
