ISN joins UK Kidney Week
The city of Liverpool, also known for its role in British music history, is playing host to the UK’s Renal Association’s annual congress this week. ISN took on a valuable role, co-sponsoring the opening plenary session that focused on the global challenge of acute kidney injury.
ISN Programs Chair John Feehally led with an engaging talk on the challenges faced by the global nephrology community in dealing with acute kidney injury worldwide.
Rhys Evans from Royal Free Hospital University College London then described the development of kidney care in Malawi, which has moved ahead thanks to support from ISN through the Sister Centers, Saving Young Lives, and 0by25 programs.
They were joined by speakers from some of the UK’s leading kidney centers, including University of Cambridge, Salford Royal Hospital, and University of Nottingham and Royal Derby Hospital.
Following from this session, ISN Past President Adeera Levin also moderated a specific session on chronic kidney disease (CKD), showcasing the results of the recently-launched ISN Global Kidney Health Atlas.
