NSF's Peer Team is a group of older teens / young adults, here to support younger patients and teens with Nephrotic Syndrome. They are here to support, share and talk with you / your child as you travel this journey. Look for virtual peer groups, topic talks, "pen-pal" connections, meet-ups, activities, and more.
