The Renal Research Institute (RRI) is allowing immediate access through online platforms to critical new science regarding COVID-19 and its impact on kidney care, in the wake of rescheduling its virtual conference. RRI, a division of Fresenius Medical Care North America, is focused on improving outcomes of patients with kidney disease through research and innovation.
RRI is offering nine videos through a new YouTube series that provides immediate free access to selected speakers and panel presentations:
RRI rescheduled its 23rd International Conference on Dialysis – Advances in Kidney Disease from January to April 20 – 23, 2021 in acknowledgement of the international medical community’s COVID-19 healthcare priority.
“RRI values the contributions all clinicians bring to patients around the world,” says Dr. Peter Kotanko, Research Director of the Renal Research Institute. “Rescheduling this year’s virtual conference to April is the right move to ensure we support clinicians and caregivers currently focused on COVID-19.”
2021’s virtual conference will feature 400 physicians, nurses, fellows, researchers, and scholars, representing more than nine different countries, discussing the most current and innovative scientific insights and developments in nephrology. This year’s conference offers three tracks: pediatric nephrology; general nephrology; and nurse care.
By the time the virtual three-day conference in April takes place, nephrologists, renal researchers, and kidney experts will have already had online access to a plethora of research and expertise from leading organizations that includes Columbia University, Harvard Medical School, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Yale University, and Vanderbilt University.
The virtual platform of this year’s event allows an ease of access that will also provide an on-demand library of material, background, informational sessions, and Q&A sessions with thought leaders and experts from all over the world. The online library will remain available on-demand until December 31, 2021.
RRI also launched its first-ever social media channels in 2021. Interested audiences can follow and interact with the Renal Research Institute on the following platforms:
