March 12 is World Kidney Day. Lankenau Medical Center will be hosting World Kidney Day Symposium in the Auditorium from 9:30 until 3:30 pm during that day. We are the host for the Penn-Delaware Region.
Patients, family members, general public and health care professionals are all welcome and expected. There will be informational presentations by medical and nursing staffs and nephrology chiefs from each MLH campus as well as our Kidney Transplant team and dialysis teams.
Also, there will be a presentation by a local Chef whose wife is on HD and an author who donated a kidney to her Mother. Hope to have Gift of Life and National Kidney Foundation there as well.
Public touring of the new building will also be available at the completion of the symposium.
