Looking for sporty and fit kidney patients
The Leicester Kidney Exercise Team would like to get in touch with kidney patients from around the UK who participate in sport or undertake exercise training at higher intensities or duration than the average kidney patients does e.g. those who train for running, cycling etc.
As part of the launch of the new National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine at Loughborough University, we are holding an event in July for these unusually fit and active individuals to talk about their experiences and any difficulties they face, and to showcase the new National Centre, its facilities and the work that is going on there. We anticipate that most of these people will be kidney transplant recipients but we are equally keen to hear from anyone managing to engage in sport or fitness on dialysis, PD or with earlier CKD.
We would love to hear from patients that fit this description so we can invite them to the July event. Travel expenses will be reimbursed, and we can arrangement overnight accommodation for anyone who needs it. We hope it will be an interesting and enjoyable day for all the attendees.
