Biology for PKD

April 2015

Brentwood High School biology teacher, Jackie Johnson, does a unit on diseases in her advanced biology class each year. This year, PKD was a one of the featured diseases, inspired by Pittsburgh Walk Coordinator and school nurse, Nancy Kaminski. Nancy shared her family history to illustrate the genetic component of the disease. At the end of the diseases unit, Jackie asks the students to choose a disease they've learned about and do a fundraiser for patients with that disease. Jackie's class picked PKD. The students raised $320! How can you support PKD and the Pittsburgh Walk in your community?
