    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hi Everyone,
    Plans are underway for the first NephCure Lunch and Learn Seminar of 2013, which will be held on February 9th, 2012 at the San Francisco State University downtown Campus. This is a great educational opportunity to learn more about the most recent advancements in FSGS/NS research and treatment options (not to mention, you can ask docs unlimited questions without a copay:)).
    If you live in the Central/Northern CA area and would like to attend, or would like more information on upcoming seminars, please contact Patient Advocate, Charlene Mukarakate at cmukarakate@nephcure.org or call 610-540-0186 x27. It is FREE to attend and a light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
