ISN to Attend American Kidney Fund Summit: Addressing the Unknown Cause of Kidney Disease
The ISN is participating in a summit organized by the American Kidney Fund (AKF) to plan strategies to improve understanding of how undiagnosed or misdiagnosed causes of kidney disease directly impact patient care and outcomes. The virtual event will take place on December 1 from 12 – 4 p.m. ET.
The summit will include participation from medical leaders, patient advocates, academic and industry researchers, and patients themselves to identify how the kidney community can stimulate innovation in research, diagnosis, and treatment of the underlying causes of kidney disease.
A steering committee appointed by AKF will lead the publication of a white paper based on insights generated during the summit and form working groups to advance suggested solutions.
