Presented by: Jacob Taylor, Clinical Dietician at Children's Mercy Hospital
The holiday season is fast approaching, which means lots of family get-togethers, dinners and company parties. With food being a primary focus during these social gatherings, it can be a challenge for people with kidney disease to stick with their kidney-friendly diet. Join us for this webinar to learn how to maintain your kidney diet, while still enjoying the most delicious time of the year. Jacob Taylor will also discuss his PKD Diet Study.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
