Weekly Meeting - Dr. David Levine, Nephrologist

Dr. David Levine gave an interesting slide display reflecting the effects of Diabetic Kidney disease. Ottawa is the location of Canada’s very first Kidney Research Centre, established in 2000, and the current president is our own Jackie Holzman. Significant research is being conducted in the area of kidney disease and while the Kidney Research Centre was the benefactor of a significant grant last year, there still remains a need for additional support, especially in the area of high tech machines. The slide presentation was even more heartwarming, as it depicted a young mother of two, who suffers from Diabetic Kidney disease and the journey she and her family have taken since her diagnosis in 1979.
