4th Annual Kidney Conference

Aloft Oklahoma City Downtown - Bricktown
 
We are looking forward to reuniting IN PERSON for the National Kidney Foundation's 4th Annual Kidney Conference: a valued program in the Oklahoma and Kansas nephrology communities.
 
We will be offering this in person experience as well as a selection of on demand sessions. This one-day CME certified professional education symposium provides nephrology healthcare professionals, and other healthcare professionals that work with kidney patients, with timely information on chronic kidney disease guidelines & standards, medication updates, research, treatments, and co-morbidities, so that they may better care for their patients.
