Also launched today is a new video in partnership with ISN, including interviews with ISN President Adeera Levin, Past President Giuseppe Remuzzi, and President Elect David Harris.

The Campaign will provide monthly updates on advances in nephrology as well as expert commentaries and interviews on key health and policy issues relevant to kidney disease. For the launch, there will also be a commentary on the winner of the Affordable Dialysis Prize.
