The impact of COVID-19 on diabetes, dialysis and kidney disease:
COVID-19 has become the greatest challenge the world currently faces. Truly a matter of life and death, the pandemic has severely impacted our lives, our healthcare systems, hospitals and medical facilities, healthcare professionals, medical research, governments, world markets, the economy and humanity itself. Many new medical questions have arisen such as, how does this affect surgeries and transplants? What new or additional precautions and procedures are necessary for dialysis, blood transfusions and blood draws? How has COVID-19 affected Diabetes and Kidney Disease patients, dialysis centers, treatment and medical procedures?

Focus on Diabetic Kidney Disease during COVID-19:
In response to many new questions and concerns, the 2021 Kidney Disease Impact Conference will focus on updates, recent information, clinical breakthroughs and healthcare issues, by bringing greater awareness about Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) during and after COVID-19.

A virtual healthcare conference streaming internationally:
For health and safety reasons due to COVID-19, the 2021 Kidney Disease Impact Conference has progressed from an in-person conference with national webinar support to a 100% virtual, streaming event. This has greatly expanded and opened-up the opportunity for outreach to renal communities globally. Streaming as a one-day healthcare conference, the event will bring together medical and healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers and anyone interested in learning more about kidney disease for an incredible educational opportunity and full day series of necessary and informative webinars.
