World Kidney Day 2013

Thursday, March 14, 2013 is World Kidney Day, and this year the kidney community focuses on acute kidney injury (AKI). AKI is a major public health issue, and ASN recognizes World Kidney Day by increasing awareness about this condition.

Through its AKI Advisory Group, ASN has developed a series of valuable materials, including a survey on the prevalence of AKI in the United States, to commemorate World Kidney Day.

Be sure to check your email on Thursday, March 14 for a link to the survey.
