Distinctions in delivery are notable between two options—either attending Kidney Week in-person in Orlando or attending in a fully virtual capacity—but both experiences promise to be enlightening and rewarding.
Each year ASN brings together kidney professionals from around the world to share work, learn about the latest advances in the field, develop new collaborations, and listen to provocative exchanges between leading experts. “This is where we move hope to action,” ASN President Susan E. Quaggin, MD, FASN, said last year during Kidney’s Week’s opening plenary . “Over the past few years in the kidney field, we have created and have witnessed incredible advances in innovation. In the past three years alone, there has not been one, but dozens, of positive clinical trials—trials with such significance that we now have the power to change the course of kidney diseases, preventing millions of deaths and saving millions of kidneys.”
This year’s Kidney Week Education Committee and ASN staff have planned an in-person event in Orlando, Florida, as well as a fully virtual option for remote participants. Distinctions in delivery are notable between the two options—either attending Kidney Week in-person in Orlando or attending in a fully virtual capacity—but both experiences promise to be enlightening and rewarding.
For those traveling to Orlando and attending in-person, Kidney Week will include three early programs: Advances in Research Conference: Regenerative Medicine and Bioartificial Kidneys , Fundamentals of Renal Pathology , and Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Nephrology . These early programs include on-demand content and in-person sessions in Orlando on November 2, as well as access to all recorded presentations for up to three years.
For fully virtual participants, Kidney Week will feature four early programs: Critical Care Nephrology , Glomerular Diseases , Maintenance Dialysis , and Renal Physiology . Each includes on-demand and live-streamed content, as well as access to all recorded presentations for up to three years. Virtual live-stream sessions will be available October 26–27.
Each early program has a separate registration fee and offers continuing education credits. On October 19, early program on-demand content will be available on the meeting platform for both in-person and virtual early program participants. Also, all recorded content will be available on the meeting platform through December 21. In January 2023, all recorded content will be transferred to the ASN eLearning Center.
ASN’s Annual Meeting will take place from November 3–6. In-person participants will experience plenaries and other sessions live and onsite in Orlando. Virtual participants can experience live-stream plenaries in real-time. Both in-person and virtual participants will have on-demand access to all sessions through December 21. While in-person participants can view posters live and onsite, virtual participants have the option of viewing ePosters online.
Exhibits, networking, and ancillary events are other key components of Kidney Week, which will only be available to those who attend in-person. For more information. please visit bit.ly/3bKAQEG . To register, please visit www.asn-online.org/kidneyweek .
