Nephrology Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee

Our Mission & Vision

We promote diversity, equity and inclusiveness to better kidney care, education and research among our division and the nephrology community. We support an inclusive professional community where everyone’s voice and ideas are valued and respected.
