Kidney Week 2021 - Important Update

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of ASN's leadership and staff, thank you for everything you do for the kidney community.

The ASN Council recently approved a plan for Kidney Week 2021 to include virtual content and an in-person Annual Meeting (from Thursday, November 4, through Sunday, November 7, in San Diego, CA). The ASN Kidney Week Education Committee and staff are working to ensure the best hybrid Kidney Week 2021 possible.

ASN plans to open registration and housing for Kidney Week 2021 in mid-August. Between now and then, there are many components of the meeting to address. For updates, please check the ASN website in the next month and make sure you read communications from ASN carefully.

Again, thank you.
