The PKD Connect Conference (PKDCON) is an annual event that brings together every part of the PKD community—from patients and caregivers to researchers and physicians—to provide education, research updates, resources, and networking opportunities.

Session recordings from our 2022 event are available in our Resource Library!

Now, as always, the PKD Foundation is committed to our mission of giving hope, advocating for patients, and building a community for all impacted by PKD. We'll continue supporting our community by providing important resources and timely updates on social media.

Walk for PKD Ambassador

As the Houston Walk for PKD Ambassador I’m excited to organize such a worthy event that will raise funds to end PKD, which has affected so many generations of families. Equally important is to also have the Walk, and other community education events, increase awareness of PKD and provide the Houston area PKD community opportunities to exchange information and encouragement.
