A Note from the Program Chairman
The NYSN has been in existence for more than 20 years. We believe it is the largest regional nephrology society in the United States. The Society meets about 7 times per year, with the purpose of bringing two excellent speakers in nephrology to New York each month for the benefit of the members. The last meeting of the year, in May, is Fellows' Night, during which nephrology fellows in the New York area present their research.
Meetings of the Society take place in the Uris Auditorium at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical School, at 1300 York Avenue, on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. Annual dues for members are $45. Nephrology fellows are encouraged to attend; dues are free for fellows. The Society also receives generous support from the National Kidney Foundation of New York/New Jersey and from several pharmaceutical firms. Currently we are endeavoring to have our program award Continuing Medical Education credits through the Medical Society of the State of New York.

The Society particularly wishes to thank Dr. John Daugirdas for encouraging us to post the talks from the Society's meetings, giving us a web page at HDCN for this purpose, and doing the hard work to make the talks presentable in an attractive and useful manner.
Dr. David Goldfarb
