Shire “Make a Difference” at ERA-EDTA congress in Munich



This allows Shire funds to support renal associations that encourage improved service delivery and patient care. In addition, Shire will be supporting local communities by donating the furniture and building blocks used on the Shire Interactive Space to local charities after the event.

Shire has devised a very innovative and fun way to involve congress participants in the selection of how much will go to each of the three organizations.
