We've been monitoring closely the coronavirus and coronavirus disease (also known as COVID-19), and the need to take appropriate precautions to protect those most at risk, including kidney disease patients and their families.
After careful considertion, we've decided to move the Great Chefs of the Midwest to a virtual event (please see below for more details). We believe this decision is in the best interest of the entire kidney community and is necessary to protect the patients and families at the heart of oru organization's mission.
