What's New in PKD 2015: A Live Broadcast Day of PKD Learning

Saturday, March 28, 2015
10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Central Time
(local times may vary)


PKD Foundation Chapters are invited to participate in this exclusive, online educational conference! PKD experts from across the United States will discuss  topics that are important to PKD patients. This year, we will be focusing on extrarenal complications associated with PKD. Not everyone that has PKD will experience every complication associated with the disease however, understanding these issues will help you to be your best advocate when you visit your physicians. Chapters will also have the opportunity to submit questions to be answered by presenters during the event.


This is a great opportunity to connect with others interested in PKD in your community while hearing about the latest information in the field from PKD experts. This event is only offered through our Chapter network. More Chapters are being added regularly so if you don’t see a Chapter close to you listed below, check back soon.
