Building Bridges that Advance Kidney Care

A psychology professor asking “big questions” put Lesley A. Inker, MD on her path to nephrology. Dr. Inker was attracted to nephrology because it offered her the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with patients and to seek answers to big questions in public health. Her ASN Career Development Grant was a key to making the kind of contributions that mattered.
