A SPECIAL THANKS TO FRESENIUS
FOR SUPPORTING THE NKF
The leader of the Fresenius team, Helen Thaw, with NKF chairman
Gordon Nicholas. It is their support of the Conference that has helped
to make Fresenius a household name amongst kidney patients.
More than 400 people attended the conference whose theme
was Dialysis and Beyond ... The Patients' View. For the
first time patients had been asked to give their views on what the
Chairman, Gordon Nicholas, welcomed the delegates
and asked for a short silence for kidney patients who were no longer with
us and also for the victims of the Bali disaster.
