U.S. Renal Care Hosts Eighth Annual Nephrology Business Leadership Program

U.S. Renal Care (USRC), a leading provider for chronic and acute renal disease, held its eighth annual Nephrology Business Leadership (NBLU) program at the Hilton Granite Park in Plano, Texas this month.  The annual event, developed in conjunction with the University of California San Diego Division of Nephrology & Hypertension and Dallas Renal Group, a large private nephrology practice in Dallas, brings together nephrology professionals to prepare senior nephrology fellows for their future careers.

Speakers for the event included practicing nephrologists, faculty from multiple academic institutions and leaders from national renal trade associations including American Association of Kidney Patients, American Society of Nephrology, National Kidney Foundation, Renal Physicians Association, and Women in Nephrology.

Second year fellow and 2023 alumnus Dr. Omar Osman said, “Highly recommended for any senior Nephrology fellow looking to learn more about our field.”

Sponsors for the event included Calliditas, GSK, Horizon, Aurinia, Bayer, Eurofins and KidneyLink.

I had a blast at NBLU and learnt lots from the leaders in this industry; it has restored my faith in our field!
