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.
