learn from the experts

making kidney connections

Join us for a BRAND NEW program called Kidney Connections.  Kidney Connections provides an opportunity to make connections with the kidney community, including patients, and experts, so we can have a conversation and learn from each other.  The first edition of the program is a lunch & learn conversation with transplant recipients, dialysis patients, and a living donor.  Stay tuned throughout the year, because we will have three more chances to make some Kidney Connections: two more webinars and one in-person networking and educational event.
