Nephrology in 2050
The past 32 years have seen significant changes in the field of nephrology, and the next 32 years are expected to be characterized by continued progress. This talk will focus on some of the scientific advances, that if successful, could significantly alter the fields of dialysis and kidney transplantation by the year 2050.
Led by Amol Shrikhande, MD
After completing his nephrology fellowship at Yale in 2010, Dr. Amol Shrikhande joined Nephrology Associates in Rochester, NY, where he has been ever since. As a general nephrologist, Dr. Shrikhande's day-to-day experience spans the spectrum of kidney disease. He has had an upfront seat to the current limitations of nephrology practice and has thus developed a significant interest in trying to understand the scientific advances that will eventually push the field forward. By grasping the restraints of pharmacologic therapy, he has also developed a special interest in the prevention of chronic kidney disease progression via dietary measures. He has previously spoken at the ANNA Great Lakes Chapter Annual Teaching Day, the Annual Joint Meeting of the Upstate and Western NY Councils on Renal Nutrition, and several Grand Rounds at Unity Hospital. As an aside, Dr. Shrikhande has a passion for promoting the often-undersold Rochester region, and his thoughts can be found in his non-bestselling book Rochesternomics: Why, Statistically Speaking, You Should Live in Rochester, NY.
Plant-Based Nutrition and Evolving Medical Paradigms
Why do changes in our scientific knowledge take so long to be put into medical practice? Why do we still treat most heart disease with drugs and procedures when we have known since the 1990’s that most heart disease can be arrested and reversed with diet and lifestyle changes? Why was radical mastectomy the standard of care for breast cancer patients for almost 100 years? What happened to the physician who first proposed that we should wash our hands before examining a patient? These and other interesting questions will be explored during this lively presentation. Q&A to follow.
