Fourth Annual NephJC Kidneys Awards Announces Winner of New CJASN NephJC Kidney Award for Best Visual Abstract 2019

By ASN Staff

The fourth annual NephJC Kidneys awards were hosted in Washington, DC on Friday, November 8 to coincide with ASN Kidney Week 2019. NephJC is an online medical journal club. They utilize social media and, in particular, the Twitter community to generate discussion and review current literature related to nephrology. It is open to anyone: nephrologists, residents, fellows, cardiologists, internists, urologists, radiologists, pharmacologists, and patients contribute to the discussion. Many contributors attended the NephJC event and took part in the Tweet-up.

All those considered for the awards were nominated by peers during a two-week period in September 2019.

A brand-new award was presented this year, the CJASN NephJC Kidney Award for Best Visual Abstract 2019. CJASN was invited to co-sponsor the award, given their successful implementation of a visual abstract development program. NephJC explains that “[v]isual abstracts are improving science communication, but not all visual abstracts are created equal.”

With 10 visual abstracts nominated, the 2019 winner of the new Best Visual Abstract award was "Which is the Best Biochemical Test for Diagnosis of Pheochromocytoma & Paraganglioma (PPGL)?" created by Divya Bajpal (@divyaa24). The winning visual abstract is below and the associated study can be found here. The award was presented by Rajnish Mehrotra, MD, FASN, the Editor-in-Chief of CJASN.

Additional awards were presented in the following categories: Article of the Year, the Nathan Hellman Social Media Project of the Year, Engaged Researcher of the Year, NephJC Rookie of the Year, and NephJC Most Valuable Player.
