March 9th is World Kidney Day!

World Kidney Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide.

This year’s theme for World Kidney Day is ‘Health for All – Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable.’ Visit to learn more!

Let others know about PKD and join the fight to end it by participating in 31 Days of PKD Challenges!
