  • ASN Statement Against Racism

    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
    to oppose racism. ASN strongly supports and will advance efforts to achieve equality to reduce the
    adverse impact of racism, especially on health and in health care.
