ASN Foundation for Kidney Research: Securing the Future

In Honor of Tomas Berl, MD, FASN

Donated By Melinda Hockensmith, MD, FASN On April 26, 2017

Dr. Berl, you were an inspirational teacher who set high expectations for your students while maintaining respect, kindness and enthusiasm in your instruction. You engaged each one of us individually and created a sense of community and friendship that I still value today. Thank you for showing up in the ICU at midnight to go over our cases, thank you for always looking for teaching opportunities on rounds and helping write notes when we were behind, thank you for treating every question as if it was the first time it was ever asked, thank you for supporting our education and careers then and now. It is our turn to honor you.
