Renal Roundtable POSTPONED

High Potency Phosphate Binding: Clinical Experience and Implications

The Capital Grille — Garden City

Garden City, NY 11530

Thank you for expressing interest in our upcoming Renal Round Table.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been closely monitoring the coronavirus and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, and the need to take appropriate precautions to protect those most at risk. Your health and safety are our priority.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), older adults and people with kidney disease or other chronic conditions are at greater risk of experiencing serious coronavirus illness. It is especially important for patients to take preventive measures aimed at reducing the likelihood of exposure. This includes avoiding crowds and public spaces.

After careful consideration and working in partnership with Fresenius Medical Care, we’ve decided to postpone a Renal Round Table originally scheduled for March 19, 2020. We believe this decision, though not ideal, is in the best interest of the entire kidney community and is necessary to protect the patients and families at the heart of our organization’s mission.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. I hope we can still count on your support and look forward to welcoming you to the rescheduled event. We will let you know the new date once it is confirmed.

In the interim:

Thank you for your understanding and support.
