#KidneyWk 2017 Social Wrap-Up

Kidney Week represents so many things – a time to brush up on knowledge, hear about late breaking information, engage with science and scientists, and so much more. I always leave feeling inspired by what is happening in nephrology. It also represents a time for friends from all corners of the world to meet and see each other in person. As nephrology social media members from various platforms come together, Kidney Week may be the only time/place for collaborators and colleagues to meet and interact face to face. To that end, here’s a review of many of the non-session interactions that occurred during #KidneyWk 2017.
