Pittsburgh, PA US
June 6, 2019

Regional Renal Grand Rounds is a program that brings together nephrologists and renal fellows from western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia for speakers of national significance on topics that need to be addressed. This program will focus on glomerular diseases -which historically have been poorly understood and associated with poor outcomes. Significant advances have been made in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of many of these conditions over the last decade and this program will provide a necessary update for clinicians.
