Stuart A. Kleit Symposium

The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana’s Stuart A. Kleit Symposium will be entering it’s 31st year in 2022. This three-day virtual educational conference for kidney professionals and their professional associates features specific topics for nephrologists, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, technicians, dietitians, and social workers.

By providing information about the latest developments and needs within the renal field, it is the NKFI’s hope to improve the quality of care for all patients with kidney disease.

  • Difficult Conversations with Patients and Families
  • Transplantation Fears
  • Sexuality and Kidney Disease
  • Pregnant and on Dialysis
  • And More!
