A Message From Your Chapter Coordinator
Greetings from Minnesota! I recently became the Chapter Coordinator for our state. I have PKD and am currently one of the subjects in the Tolvaptan study. PKD has had quite an impact on my family as my uncle died at 55 and my dad at 72 from complications of this disease. I am interested in doing all I can to raise awareness of the struggle patients and families face with PKD. Please join with me in our work to find a cure for PKD. Contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
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 Twin Cities 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 Coordinator, Pam, at email@example.com.
Check back for upcoming meetings!

PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
