Stretch your mind at Controversies in Nephrology, an evening of thoughtful and lively debate focused on examining the questions central to kidney disease. Groups of nephrology fellows representing Chicago’s academic medical centers will field teams, engage in a few bouts of friendly competition, and challenge one another to think critically about patient care, physical health, and research. Whether or not you are part of a team, all attendees are encouraged to participate in the conversation.
