Local Events and Meetings
Join us for our Chapter Meet & Greets. We will meet at Waterbean Coffee, 9705 Sam Furr Road, Suite A, Huntersville, NC 28078. Our chapter has many new members who want to connect with other PKD patients and PKD family members. Several of you have stated you want to “get more involved” with the Chapter. Current members are encouraged to join us as we move forward in building a strong Chapter. Everyone is encouraged to stop in, have a cup of coffee (decaf, of course), tea and/or a morning treat and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas.
Meet & Greet events will take place throughout the Charlotte area in the coming months. We encourage everyone to attend our first Meet & Greet to lay the ground work for the future. If you wish to share a thought, concern or idea to assist us in planning upcoming Meet & Greets, please feel free to send an email to the email@example.com.
