Registration is now closed.

Early recognition and treatment of renal disorders in children can delay progression and may even prevent the development of chronic renal failure,
minimizing neurological deficits and growth disturbance. Recent technological breakthroughs and better understanding of pediatric kidney disease has led to improved care of infants and children with various nephropathies. This program is designed to provide an update for pediatricians, pediatric urologists, pediatric subspecialists and nurses regarding renal disease from the neonatal period to late adolescence.
