NephMadness 2016: Thanks

2016 poland added

Every four years, at the closing ceremonies of the Olympics, the head of the IOC states, “This has been the best Olympics ever!” This post is our version of the closing ceremony and our way of saying, this has been the best NephMadness ever!


We had more entries than last year:

Data from measures tweets from 2/14-4/14 of each year

And we are getting more and more people to play around the world

Each year participants from outside of the US represent a larger proportion of the pie, which itself is growing.

Thank you!

We are delighted that people are engaging in NephMadness. A project like this cannot be done by one or two people. It takes a team and we have a great one. We literally could not do this without the blood, sweat, tears, nights, and weekends of the following people:

Twitter Nephrophiles for great discussion and support of NephMadness.

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.
