ASN Launches Facebook Group

Facebook is not just for college kids anymore. It is the fifth most popular website in the world and reaches over 500 million users on a monthly basis. With projections of phenomenal growth in the future, Facebook and other social media sites represent a shift in how people discover, read, and share news, information, and content.

ASN serves an important community of people interested in improving kidney health. The society extends its support of this community by using Facebook to convey information of interest to members and, most importantly, receive feedback from members.

ASN’s Facebook page is a forum for participants to stay informed about advocacy and public policy, educational opportunities, breaking news, plans for ASN Renal Week, current research, grant funding and ASN services. We hope this venue helps members connect with each other, facilitates discussion and sharing of information, and provides key feedback to the society so that ASN may continue to improve services to members.
