Join a Support Group

Our support groups are at the core of our organization.  These groups are free, informal meetings that take place every month or every other month depending on the group. Generally, we try to hold meetings at restaurant spaces so that we can meet over lunch. Meetings are open to all those involved in the transplant process before and after surgery.

 

At meetings, we provide useful information and discuss topics relevant to our meeting attendees.  More importantly, our support groups offer a comfortable space to share your experiences with kidney disease, and hear from others about their experiences. Our support groups foster connections to people in your community going through the same issues and symptoms as you.

Currently all in-person meetings are cancelled. To register for our next online Zoom meeting, click here.
