Advances & Future Goals For Kidney Care

Over a year ago, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that has led to the most aggressive push to improve the lives of patients with kidney disease since Congress agreed to pay for life-saving dialysis treatment in 1972. This webinar will explore the progress on that directive and discuss the goals, key regulatory measures, and challenges it may impose on the renal community. Additionally, the executive order has accelerated innovation in nephrology in a way that has never been seen before. In the end will it improve patient outcomes? Join the NephU Community for an informative session and a live Q & A with Mark Neumann.

*Speaker is a paid consultant of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc (OPDC). The moderator is an employee of OPDC.
