Better Together at the PKD National Convention

This June, the PKD community will unite in Kansas City for three days of relationship building, education and fun. Join us as we hear from experts in the field, including Gregory G. Germino, M.D. of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health and leading ARPKD expert Lisa Guay-Woodford, M.D. Whether you are a PKD patient, caregiver or family member we know you will walk away from the Convention with new connections, friends and practical tips for managing your health or supporting a loved one.

PKD Foundation Chapter Support meetings ensure that no one faces PKD alone. It is a chance to connect with others affected by PKD, learn about PKD and find out about the latest resources available from the PKD Foundation. We will also begin planning for the 2014 Pittsburgh Walk for PKD. We hope you will join us!
