A note from the Coordinator
Welcome to the Charleston Chapter for the PKD Foundation. We are looking to increase connections within the PKD community with patients, family, and the medical professions who work with us. I am excited to help the chapter as the new coordinator. I know there are always a lot of questions and desire to meet people who understand the challenges you are facing. I hope to make the Charleston chapter a welcoming environment so that we can make progress against PKD.
Best to You All,
Charleston Chapter Coordinator

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 Charleston 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, Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
