Why I volunteer- Yvonne DiCarlo Clemens
"So, while I'm waiting for my miracle pill, I want to do all I can to help those in need of transplants. I'm getting involved with the PKD Foundation to increase awareness, education, support, advocacy and fund raising so that dialysis will become a thing of the past. I do this for myself, my children, my grandchildren, and for you".

Presented by Lawrence Grunfeld, M.D., clinical associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and co-director of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, known as PGD, is a screening test used to determine if genetic or chromosomal disorders are present in embryos produced through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
In this webinar, Lawrence Grundfeld, M.D. speaks and answers questions about PGD as it relates to PKD. He is also joined by two families who have chosen to use PGD in family planning.
PKD Discussion forums provide a place for patients, family and friends to make connections, ask questions and share stories and experiences.
