important “Reaching beyond the stars” gala update
In consultation with transplant infectious disease physicians and the NKFI Medical Advisory Board, The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana is redesigning the October 23 Gala to a 6-week asynchronous celebration that doesn’t include gathering. As a major public health organization, NKFI does not want to take a chance of transplant recipients, other kidney patients, or our vital first-line workers contracting COVID 19.
In this video, Dr. Mishler, Nephrologist and NKFI Board Member explains the exciting new changes:
30th annual stuart a. kleit symposium
The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana is pleased to announce the 30th annual Stuart A. Kleit Symposium, a three-day virtual educational conference for kidney professionals and their professional associates. Sessions will focus on the theme Taboo Topics in Renal Care that will be of interest to nephrologists, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, technicians, dietitians, and social workers. This is an accredited event, and participants will earn 6.5 credit hours.
This year’s conference will be a virtual event hosted on Zoom. It will be held over three days, Wednesday, November 10, 2021, through Friday, November 12, 2021, with convenient lunch-time sessions each day starting at 11:00 AM (EST) and ending at 1:30 PM (EST).
By providing information about the latest developments needs within the renal field, it is the NKFI’s hope to improve the quality of care for all patients with kidney disease.
