Professional Resources + Education
Renal Roundtable programs
A PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION AND NETWORKING PROGRAM
Renal Roundtable programs are locally-based professional education events that bring together nephrologists and advanced practice clinicians for an opportunity for a collegial exchange of ideas and open dialogue amongst local nephrology professionals.
Featuring compelling presentations and roundtable discussions with nationally renowned experts in the field - on cutting edge, and sometimes controversial issues, relevant to their practice - these non-accredited programs allow for the sharing of case studies, common experiences, and best practices.
Hosted by the NKF Medical Advisory Board of Kansas City
