Honoring Health Professionals

Health professionals take great pride in our commitment to improving the lives of those we care for. We recognize and accept that our calling involves risk, day in and day out.

This year, facing the challenges, stress, and ongoing burden of a global pandemic, kidney professionals have demonstrated the resolve and focus on excellence that exemplifies our profession.

Physicians, scientists, nurses, advanced practice providers, technicians, and so many others have stepped into unknown territory with grace and courage. We have devised new ways to provide care, taken on additional work with resolve, and shared essential knowledge and insights with peers worldwide.

Professionals across the globe have sacrificed their personal lives, time with family and friends, and other professional pursuits.

Many have sacrificed everything.

I encourage you to take the time to read through this list of health professionals who have died while providing care during this pandemic.

I am proud to work in nephrology. Every day I see kidney professionals honor those colleagues we have lost by carrying on the work they loved.
