COVID-19 is a serious health threat and the situation is evolving daily. In these uncertain times, it’s normal to feel anxious, especially for those with underlying health conditions. Talking to people you can trust and getting the information you need can help.
The Kidney Foundation, in partnership with The Canadian Society of Nephrology is proud to present a webinar specifically for dialysis patients. This webinar will give you the opportunity to ask questions to some of Canada’s leading nephrologists and dialysis specialists about the vaccine and to hear from a dialysis patient about his experiences with being on dialysis during the pandemic.
Dr. Jeffrey Perl and Dr. Matthew Muller will provide information about:
Dr. Matthew Muller, Toronto, ON MD, FRCPC, PhD
