Over the past decade, Social Media (SoMe) platforms have become increasingly popular to disseminate information from medical conferences. Twitter has become a notably favored platform for nephrologists to share content.

To ensure comprehensive coverage of congress lectures and presentations across SoMe platforms, a SoMe Task Force (SMTF) was created by the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) at the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) in Mexico in April 2017.

After evaluating the work of the SoMe Task Force SMTF, the ISN decided to adopt its mission of providing comprehensive coverage of congress programs and activities as a core feature of its educational platform.

The Social Media Task Force metamorphosed into the @ISNeducation Social Media Team and is now a component of the ISN Education Working Group.

Composed of both original SMTF members and new educators from around the world, @ISNeducation continues to present the latest complex ideas in an accessible way through a variety of social media platforms.
