Better Together at the PKD National Convention
June 20–22, 2014

This June, the PKD community will unite in Kansas City for three days of relationship building, education and fun. Join us as we hear from experts in the field, including Gregory G. Germino, M.D. of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health and leading ARPKD expert Lisa Guay-Woodford, M.D. Whether you are a PKD patient, caregiver or family member we know you will walk away from the Convention with new connections, friends and practical tips for managing your health or supporting a loved one.
