Canberra Region Kidney Support Group Inc
Welcome to the CRKSG
Welcome to the Canberra Region Kidney Support Group (CRKSG) Inc web site. CRKSG is a patient self-help group made up of people with kidney failure and their families, carers and friends. This website aims to give members and non members of CRKSG a guide to our organisation and how we can help you.
The original CRKSG logo was designed by Sue Keunen. The logo represents the person as a whole, meaning that the whole person with kidney failure is to be supported. The CRKSG acknowledges the contribution made by Sue. The original logo has been in use for some years and a decision was taken to update the logo a little. The original design by Sue was retained but modernised a little.
We hope that you find our web site interesting and informative.
