News and Updates
It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you all for the 47th Annual Conference of Indian Society of Nephrology from 15th to 18th December 2016, to be held at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.
The scientific committee is working hard to provide a comprehensive scientific program covering various aspects of nephrology, dialysis and transplant and a galaxy of distinguished national and international faculty will participate. Kindly mark the dates in your calendar.
The conference starts with CME on 15th December, in which clinically oriented topics will be discussed. From 16th to 18th December, the main conference will cover different topics of practical relevance by way of plenary sessions, symposia, panel discussion, debates, and CPC.
An important feature of this conference is a session on prevention of chronic kidney disease (CKD). We all know that due to limited availability and huge cost, barely 10% of our people developing end stage renal disease in our country get renal replacement therapy in the form of dialysis and kidney transplant. It is therefore very important to prevent CKD in our country. In particular, there will be a talk on evolving national program for prevention of CKD.
It is also very important to remain in touch with the latest advances in the field of nephrology, dialysis and transplant. The scientific committee has thus included a session on new kidney diseases.
Mumbai is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India. Moreover, the weather in December will be very pleasant with temperatures ranging around 200 C (680 F). You will thus have the opportunity to enjoy many other things in around Mumbai besides the conference.
Dear prospective delegates, we strongly encourage you to take full advantage of the opportunity to attend the annual meeting of Indian Society of Nephrology being held in Mumbai. On behalf of the organizing committee we extend a very warm welcome & promise a comfortable stay, great scientific content & pleasant memories to take home.
With warm regards,
Dr. Bharat V. Shah & Dr. Umesh Khanna
