Satellite Healthcare Partners With the National Kidney Foundation for the 21st Annual San Francisco Author's Luncheon
Date:10/7/2009

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Satellite Healthcare, one of the nation's first and leading providers of kidney dialysis services and a major sponsor of nephrology research, today announced their sponsorship of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) 21st Annual San Francisco Author's Luncheon.

The Author's Luncheon is San Francisco's premier literary event. Each year more than 1,200 people are captivated by the fascinating stories, wit and humor of nationally-known authors, while enjoying a gourmet lunch. Participants have the opportunity to meet each author personally during the book signing sessions preceding and following the luncheon. This year, Nancy Pelosi, The Speaker of the House of Representatives, will be on-site as a participating author.

"Satellite Healthcare is a strong supporter of the NKF," said Kim Hernandez, Marketing Communications at Satellite Healthcare. "The number of people affected with Chronic Kidney Disease is rising every year, and premier events like the San Francisco Author's Luncheon provides the opportunity to raise awareness of this silent killer. I'm personally very excited to attend and, given the quality of the authors that speak every year, I am looking forward to a tremendous turnout."

Hosted by Honorary Chair Ann Getty and Event Chair Tyler Hofinga, and with KQED's Michael Krasny as Master of Ceremonies, this event features some of the most well-known and best-selling authors, including:
