As a kidney patient founded and operated non-profit organization, one of RSN’s key initiatives is to provide a patients perspective on the care they receive to the renal healthcare community. Our editorial contributors include people who are living successfully in spite of kidney disease, who may also be on dialysis or have received a kidney transplant and their families. In addition, RSN receives editorial contributions from leaders in the renal healthcare community that offer learning opportunities from their own experience and insights into treatment advances.
