Thanks for making the 2015 NephMadness Nephrology Educational Initiative a success. We could not have pulled this off without a team like this.

We especially would like to thank everyone who participated in the game. All of the planning, interviews and writing is meaningless without players. Seeing all of the people participate, tweet, and cheer makes the whole endeavor particularly rewarding.
