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.

Transplant Games of America
July 11 - 15, 2014
The Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event for individuals that have undergone life-saving transplant surgeries. The games are more than an athletic event! They highlight the importance of organ donation and celebrate the lives of organ donors and recipients. For more information about the 2014 Transplant Games of America and to register to participate, visit www.transplantgamesofamerica.org.
The PKD Foundation plans to attend the 2014 games to celebrate with PKD patients that have received a kidney transplant, living kidney donors and their families. If you plan to participate, please take our brief survey!
Join us for what we call "the gift of one another", this is the place share your experiences and learn from others.
Our chapter meetings are held on the last Saturday of each month at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Our meetings will be at:
Central Library Historical Center 2206 Beckett Street Bossier City, LA
We have speakers on any and all subjects that pertain to PKD. If you have a topic you would like to know about, we will try to find a speaker for it. There are so many topics to learn about and knowledge is the best weapon one can have so we hope you can join us for a meeting!
