39th Pediatric Nephrology Seminar Attracts International Experts to South Florida
Attracting pediatric and internal medicine nephrologists and other health professionals from the world over, the 39th annual Pediatric Nephrology Seminar will take place March 8-11 at the Alexander All Suite Ocean Front Resort on Miami Beach.
Founded and sponsored by the Miller School of Medicine, in conjunction with Holtz Children’s Hospital, the annual gathering has been a rewarding educational experience and, over 39 years, has grown into an established tradition in the field of pediatric nephrology.
“Since its founding, the seminar has brought together more than 600 distinguished faculty and has been attended by over 5,000 registrants,’’ noted seminar director Gaston Zilleruelo M.D., professor of pediatrics and chief of pediatric nephrology at the University of Miami/Holtz Children’s Hospital, who also led the six previous seminars.
This year’s event will feature nine sessions on a range of topics, including evolving concepts of developmental nephrology and genetic origins of kidney disease. Two workshops will be held on diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in dialysis and transplantation with a session devoted to fellowship training issues and research initiatives.
Other highlights include an interactive session on clinico-pathologic correlations, and two presentations, “New Mechanisms of Progressive Kidney Disease” and “Current Status of Tolerance in Clinical Organ Transplantation.”
The three-day seminar will feature 22 distinguished guest faculty and 13 local faculty members.
