Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common life-threatening, genetic diseases affecting Canadians and can result in the growth of cysts that enlarge the affected kidney, destroying its ability to function.
Patients and their loved ones are invited to join this forum to:
- Learn about what a PKD diagnosis can mean for you or a loved one, as well as how PKD can be managed from Dr. Elene Van der Merwe, Nephrologist, University of Saskatoon;
- Hear about what resources and support systems are available to you and your loved ones from Jeff Robertson, Executive Director, PKD Foundation of Canada;
- Have your questions answered during a Q&A period led by Dr. Elene Van der Merwe and Jeff Robertson; and
- Meet other people living with PKD in your community.
All are welcome to attend!
