A note from your Chapter Coordinator:
It’s a new year and a fresh start for the Phoenix Chapter! With a renewed vision and new leadership, we are planning to take this Chapter in fresh and exciting directions. As always, our focus is on PKD patients, their families and friends.
We are in the process of planning support group and educational meetings, so watch for details to follow! If you have ideas on speakers or subjects you want covered, please let us know.
It is not too early to be thinking about the 2015 Walk for PKD, to be held this fall to raise funds and awareness! Big changes here too! New location, new leadership team … we’re renewing and evolving! Stay tuned for the exact times and locations. Registration opens in June. Watch your email for details and a link to register.
We hope the information provided here is helpful to you as you manage living with PKD. Our Chapter is here for you so please contact us anytime at PhoenixChapter@pkdcure.org.
Local Events and Meetings
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 Phoenix 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, Terri and Monica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
