ISN WCN Social Media Team

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 ISN at the WCN in Mexico in April 2017. Now known as ISN WCN SoMe teams, these groups are created for all subsequent congress.
