New Virtual Event for Kidney Patients and Their Families

Posted by Ginger, Volunteer Mentor @gingerw, Oct 28, 2020

Do you have kidney disease? Are you on dialysis, or considering it? Perhaps you have had a transplant. Or, maybe you know a family member or friend who has kidney disease.

With the permission of our moderator here on Mayo Connect, and the founder/president of Renal Support Network, I am posting about the annual patient education series. I have attended several of their events. This year it is a virtual event, being held November 10-14, 2020, and accessible to everyone. In my humble opinion, as a Stage 4 kidney patient, and wife of a kidney transplant recipient, you can't have too much knowledge!
This link will take you to the information, and how you can sign up to attend virtually.
I hope to "see" you there!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Kidney & Bladder Support Group.

Have you signed up and registered, yet? There is going to be a lot of information to be shared!


@gingerw, I see that there are no fees to attend, but registration is required.

I am especially interested in the first 2 days of this virtual meeting. I want to sign up for (at least) for those sessions. Have you noticed how they correlate to what is being discussed on Connect?
-Tuesday, Nov. 10 –
Focus on Chronic Kidney Disease
How to Understand Kidney Stones and What You Can Do to Prevent Them:
Delaying the Progression of Kidney Disease:-The CKD Diet – What to Know Based on New Science:
-Wednesday, Nov. 11

For any member who has never joined an online virtual meeting, I would encourage you to register. And then, wouldn't it be fun to bring your new knowledge back to Connect and share it in the Kidney discussions?
