RWJBarnabas Health Children’s Kidney Center Annual Symposium at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center

Prevention & Treatment of Kidney Disease in Children

Registration is now officially 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 retardation. Recent technological breakthroughs and better understanding of pediatric kidney disease has led to improved care of infants and children with various nephropathies.

This program has been specifically designed to provide an update for pediatricians, pediatric urologists, pediatric sub-specialists and nurses regarding renal disease from the neonatal period to late adolescence.
