Kidney disease is a growing public-health issue. One in seven Americans has kidney disease — and it’s linked to serious conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. The Kidney Research Institute, a collaboration between Northwest Kidney Centers and UW Medicine, is committed to critical research focused on improving the lives of people with kidney disease.

Join our outstanding panel of UW Medicine nephrologists and moderator Bessie Young, MD, MPH, a UW professor in the Division of Nephrology, as they share their exciting research with you. Zoom instructions for joining the presentation will be sent to you by email upon registration. Questions about the event? Contact Elizabeth Perera at 206.551.4007 or eperera@uw.edu.
