Thursday – Friday, 5/10/12-5/11/12
This year’s NKF poster session saw the largest number of posters of any previous Spring Clinical Meeting poster sessions. Three hundred fifty eight posters, up 1.2% from last year, in over 8 categories were on display beginning Thursday evening. I followed 8 judges as we gained tips and tricks for a successful poster, which I brought to you live through the eAJKD Twitter feed. We’ll have more of the poster session a little later, but here are the poster winners from last night:
