Nephcure Patient Summit 2021

A Global Online Gathering

Nephcure Kidney International will be hosting their annual summit gathering on Sunday May 16, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The event is going to be held virtually this year.

This is a great opportunity for patients from across the globe to gather and learn about some of the latest advancements in research and treatments. This will also serve as a virtual ‘meetup’ for patients with nephrotic syndrome to share their experience with the diseases that brought them here.

Even better, this is a free event! If you are interested in attending you can sign up using the link below:

IgA Nephropathy and You

It’s not easy to get new information regarding current research in IgA Nephropathy. So with that in mind, I wanted to give a heads up to everyone who wants to learn more about where things stand currently and where they may be headed when it comes IgAN treatment and research.

IgA Nephropathy and You is a free live webinar brought to us by Nephcure Kidney International and it will be taking place on Friday May 15, 2020 from 4:00 – 5:00 PM EDT. You can check out the full flyer below, but I just wanted to point out that this is a rare opportunity to be brought up to speed on current developments.

If you are interested in attending, please be sure to register before hand. The link is provided in the flyer. I hope you’ll be there!

Update:

The webinar is available down below and runs about 2 hours. Please check it out if you are interested in where things stand in the field of IgA Nephropathy. Leave any comments and down below.
