The American Society of Pediatric Nephrology is an organization of pediatric nephrologists and affiliated health care professionals. Our primary goals are to promote optimal care for children with kidney disease through advocacy, education and research; and to disseminate advances in clinical practice and scientific investigation.
The Sediment - Phase 2, Episode 2
The sediment signs off for 2021 with a great episode featuring Adam Weinstein, Bryan Carmody, Julia Steinke, Julie Goodwin, Roshan George and Maury Pinsk. Your hosts are Ashley Rawson and Sudha Garimella and we talk about all things Med Ed and QI.
The Sediment - Phase 2, Episode 1 2021
The Sediment returns with a very special episode featuring four Barnett Award winners- Drs. Norwood, Mahan, Flynn and Warady describe both the past breakthroughs in pediatric nephrology and where they think we should concentrate our research efforts in the future. Dr. Dharnidharka talks about the man himself - Dr. Barnett! Drs. Sethna and Harshman talk about the ASPN clinical research workshop in Phase 2 that highlighted both the challenges and opportunities to get started in clinical research. Along the way, we have a lot of fun figuring out who is older, which is THE university, and of course, gorillas, dogs and parrots make an appearance as we wonder if we are actually THE American Society of Veterinary Medicine and Pediatric Nephrology!
The Sediment - Episode 5
It is the final day of Phase 1 Programming and The Sediment sets sail with the SHIP-AHOY study discussion with Dr. Don Batisky, Dr. Tammy Brady and Dr. Andrew South. We ponder over obesity associated hypertension, renovascular hypertension and ABPM as a "gold standard" and what it all means for our most vulnerable patients. Dr. Stephanie Jernigan recaps the Vasculitis session talks and we get excited about Bemulimumab and Voclosporin (just not about their spelling) and we discuss ADVOCATE trial results. Dr. Shatat joins us to talk about social media at ASPN, Dr. Maury Pinsk returns to tell us about Phase 2 and yes- we congratulate the winners of the research and clinical awards, Barnett awardees (2020 &2021) and a special mentor award for Dr. Furth. The panelists also named their favorite drinks but that will have to be in a different podcast!
See you all in Denver, folks!
The Sediment - Episode 4
Tonight, ASPN President Dr. Michael Somers is in the house! He gives us a clue about how to get him on twitter, and we chat with him and Dr. Joseph Flynn (Zoom bombing us with style!) about our role as pediatric nephrologists during a Pandemic. We have Dr. Vikas Dharnidharka educating us about all things onco-nephrology. We delve into specifics of what we can be doing to improve the quality of life of children with CKD with Dr. Aviva Goldberg, Dr. Sarah Swartz and Dr. Aaron Wightman. Along the way, we discover more Hockey players and think about work-life balance for parents of twins.😊
Dr. Sudha Mannemuddhu is our host today and we had a wonderful time talking about Day 4 of the ASPN Conference.
The Sediment - Episode 3
Day 3 of the Meeting really gave us all a lot to think about. More data leads to the need for even more data! We talk about adherence issues especially for adolescent transplant populations with our Symposium Chairs: Dr. Amy Bobrowski, Dr. Scott McEwan, Dr. Jun Oh and Dr. Tray Hunley. Dr. Oh joined us from Germany (1 AM for him!) as our ESPN Representative. We talk about the H. William Schnaper, MD, Memorial Lectureship, the policy changes we need and what to make of it all with our hosts Dr. Stella Shin and Dr. Rebecca Hjorten.
Our special Guest is Dr. Pat Brophy (PAS Program Chair) and he is here to tell us how to get the most out of PAS. Plus, we ask him about the Brophy Trophy, his love for cats (not really!) and Hockey! Tune in now.
