A note from your Chapter Coordinator:
We’re pleased to announce Carol Soha, Ph.D., as the new Delaware Chapter Coordinator. Carol comes to this position with extensive experience in health education, nursing and non-profits. She retired from nursing after many years and was Executive Director of the Delaware Center of Wellness, which promoted wellness in worksites throughout the state.
Carol has firsthand understanding of PKD as it runs in her family. She was fortunate to have received a living donor kidney in 2013. Carol took on this volunteer challenge to help her daughters and all those affected by PKD and to show her appreciation for the selfless act by her donor.
Carol is anxious to network with individuals and institutions with a similar mission to promote PKD awareness, kidney health and to increase the number of living and deceased donors.
Delaware is the state of Endless Discoveries. Families affected by PKD will learn of “endless discoveries’ through their involvement with the PKD Foundation. She invites those in need of information or who want to help with the annual Walk for PKD,other fundraisers or education events to contact her at (302) 373 – 7179 or at email@example.com.
Local Events and Meetings
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 Delaware 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
