Ahead of World Kidney Day on March 12th 2020, Montreal Chapter Coordinator, Luisa Miniaci-Di Leo has been invited by Dr. Bollée to talk about PKD live on Facebook from his office at IRCM (Institut de Recherches Cliniques de Montréal) on March 11 at 2pm.

"The Montreal Chapter is physically located in Dollard-Des-Ormeaux and started its 2020 awareness campaign early with a visit to DDO federal MP Sameer Zuberi and provincial national assembly representative Carlos J Leitao.
