The discussion is informal, but a topic or guest speaker is usual. For details and to sign up, see http://support.pkdcure.org/site/Calendar?view=Detail&id=101732 . These events are held more or less monthly; the next one will be September 10, 2017. Watch https://pkdcure.org/chapter/seattle/ for details.

The Foundation will also sponsor the three-mile Seattle Walk for PKD on October 1, 2017 at Green Lake (Seattle). For details, posters, to register for the Walk or the associated Penny Kids Dash, and to donate, see http://support.pkdcure.org/site/TR/Walk/WalkforPKD?fr_id=1766&pg=entry . So far they have pledges of $10,000 for the Walk, and they seek at lease $45,000 more to support PKD research and create better lives for those impacted by polycystic kidney disease.
The PKD Foundation website offers many resources for both patients and practitioners on Polycystic Kidney Disease. Patient resources can be found at http://www.pkdcure.org/research/nkf/patient-resources and resources for healthcare professionals at http://www.pkdcure.org/research/nkf/uptodate .
