Kidney Week 2022: New in 2022

Return to an In-Person Kidney Week

Given the progress of vaccine dissemination, the current policies in the state of Florida and city of Orlando, and the desire of many in the kidney community for in-person networking, engagement, and interactivity, the ASN Council approved an in-person Kidney Week 2022 and a virtual option for remote participation.

Please refer to the Kidney Week FAQs for key dates, in-person participant information, health and safety policies, and more.

Meeting Platform

All meeting content will be available on the virtual meeting platform for in-person and virtual participants through Wednesday, December 21, 2022. In mid-January 2023, this content will move to the ASN eLearning Center for up to three years and continue to be complimentary to meeting participants who obtain an access code. Access code information will be available in late-October 2022.
