Timothy Yau, MD and Assistant Professor of Medicine, will once again chair the Nephrology Update for Primary Care Providers Course to be held March 25, 2017, at the Eric P Newman Education Center (EPNEC). The Division of Nephrology at Washington University and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) are co-sponsoring the event, which provides an in-depth review and update in kidney disease management.
“This year marks the second year for the revived Nephrology Update for Primary Care Providers, which provides CME credit for healthcare providers in the area to learn and obtain updates from a group of Washington University specialists,” says Dr. Yau. “Last year, the program was well received and well attended, and we look forward to continuing that success.”
In 2014, the NKF launched an initiative to provide primary care clinicians and related healthcare professionals with the tools and skills to better diagnose and manage early stage kidney disease.
“We are proud to co-host this event with the NKF, and will also be bringing in speakers from other specialties to give specific updates that pertain to the care of patients with kidney disease,” says Dr. Yau.
