Below are details of how to join our next Zoom meeting on Tuesday morning 11am, on 28th April. We will be joined by Vicky who is the new Rare Kidney Disease Research nurse and she will be talking to us about the PatientMpower app, how to download it, how to use it and why we should use it.  We look forward to as many of you as possible joining us.  To help us with call management, you are welcome to join with video and audio, but when not speaking we would ask you to remain on mute and raise your virtual hand when you need to speak. This helps reduce background noise and ensures everyone is heard.  We will be using a waiting room facility and the password to help keep the call secure.  Julie Power is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
