    ASN Statement Against Racism

    The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) is proud of its efforts to promote diversity, equity,
    and inclusion among kidney health professionals. This commitment is hollow, however, if ASN fails

    adverse impact of racism, especially on health and in health care.
