The City-Wide Renal Grand Rounds Dinner, co-hosted by the Division of Nephrology at Washington University School of Medicine and the Renal Division at Saint Louis University School of Medicine will be held Thursday, October 27, 2016.
The City-Wide Grand Rounds was started over 15 years ago by Steven Bander, MD, an alum of the Nephrology Fellowship Program at WU, to give area nephrologists the opportunity to gather for dinner and academic discussion. The event was recently resurrected, and is now held in honor of nephrologist Paul Mennes, MD, a 1976 graduate of the Nephrology Fellowship Program at WU. Mennes was Clinical Professor of Medicine before leaving to become Chief of Medicine at St. Luke’s Hospital. Mennes passed away in 2014.
The event will be held in The Zodiac restaurant at Neiman-Marcus, Plaza Frontenac, St. Louis. The reception and dinner will be followed by opening remarks by Benjamin D. Humphreys MD, PhD, Director, Division of Nephrology, WU, and Kevin Martin, MB, B.Ch., FACP, Director, Renal Division, SLU.
Richard Glassock, MD, MACP, will present the evening’s topic, ANCA-Associated Vasculitis: Clinical Manifestations and Immunopathogenesis. Dr. Glassock is a prominent figure in the field of nephrology and Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles.
