October Article of the Month
Check out this review of ‘Outcomes of dialysis in neonates with anuric end-stage renal disease at birth: ethical considerations,’ performed by NPM fellow Dr Daniel Helfgott of Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. In this review he summarizes a report on 5 cases of RRT initiated within one week of life for neonates with anuric ESRD. Discussions include ethical implications of RRT in these patients.

Virtual Education Symposium on Neonatal Nephrology
The NKC has organized a free virtual education symposium on neonatal nephrology on 20th October from 12.30pm to 3.00pm pacific time; 3.30pm to 6.00pm eastern time. The symposium is designed to help support neonatal and nephrology fellows and junior faculty with educational topics on kidney development, acute kidney injury, neonatal dialysis, and neonatal conditions that affect kidney function. The symposium is open to fellows and faculty, will be held via zoom, and will require registration by 10th October. We look forward to as many trainees and junior faculty attending as possible.

Six2 Crew: Neonatal Nephrology Internship
Congratulations to our first group of Six2 Crew interns. Our 8 interns include pediatric residents, chief residents, as well as fellows in neonatology and nephrology (or both!). During their two years with the program, they will rotate through each committee and learn more about the work of the NKC. Join us in welcoming them to the NKC!
We have created a page on the website which pulls directly from PubMed the newest articles in neonatal kidney disease. While this is not an inclusive list, we hope that this is a helpful resource for NKC members to stay up to date on the new publications in the field.
