Special Events

Networking activities will be integrated into the program which will provide opportunities to connect with old colleagues and/or to meet new ones!

Opening Ceremonies and Reception on Wednesday evening and  the Networking Reception on Thursday evening provide additional opportunities to  mingle with colleagues, talk with poster presenters, and stop by the many  exhibitors to hear about the latest medical devices, pharmaceutical products,  medical books and journals.

Fellows Reception/Career Choices in Nephrology: This activity is perfect for  trainees in internal medicine and nephrology who are trying to decide what career  path to choose in nephrology. In a friendly and fun "speed networking/mentoring"  environment, meet a range of experienced individuals currently active in private  practice, academic medicine, and industry. Learn why these individuals decided on  their career paths, what they did to secure their jobs, and if (and how) they would do it again if they were starting over. There will be time for questions and answers, followed by a beer/wine reception. Come join us and learn how others made career decisions and meet your colleagues and the SCM18 faculty.

Health Care Professionals Networking Reception: This informal gathering on  Tuesday, April 10 is a time to kick back and relax with other members of the  healthcare team.

Council Networking Luncheons for Advanced Practitioners, Nurses and  Technicians, Dietitians, and Social Workers. Network with your colleagues and hear  the latest updates and information from your Council Executive Committees. You  don't have to be a member of the National Kidney Foundation to attend.
