The International Conference on Dialysis: Advances in CKD 2012 is in its 14th year and it has consistently provided the most up to date presentation of new technology and therapeutics in the field of chronic kidney disease (CKD) with an emphasis on current issues facing the CKD community, including debates on most pressing clinical topics, with world renowned key note speakers, Poster Session, oral presentation of the best three abstracts and a special edition of the journal Blood Purification as proceedings of the meeting. In this application, we are asking for help in supporting Nephrology Fellows to attend the conference. Financially the conference has operated at a loss with the gap widening in the past two years with the reduction in exhibitor income. The conference has a unique format in that there are no concurrent sessions with all the participants included in one cohort, with nearly all the meals provided and is organized to foster relationship building and cross talk among investigators, practitioners and providers. The conference will be held from Jan. 25-27, 2012 at the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, FL. This conference is organized in cooperation with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN), the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), the International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD), the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) the Sustainable Kidney Care Foundation (SKCF) and the Renal Physicians Association (RPA). The meeting is accredited for 19 AMA PRA Category I Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by the University of Minnesota.
