Enter RSN’s 19th Annual Essay Contest

19th Annual Essay Contest Theme: “Whis is Your Healthcare Hero?” This year the theme is all about the champions on your healthcare team. Tell a story about a healthcare professional who went the extra mile and improved your experience of care. RSN looks forward to hearing these stories and honoring those who work so hard to keep everyone safe during these challenging times especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

RSN’s Annual Patient Essay Contest provides an outstanding opportunity for people who have chronic kidney disease, including people on dialysis and kidney transplant recipients, to make a valuable contribution to society by expressing their ideas, views, and most importantly, hope. Entrants needed to meet only one criteria — to have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.
