National Kidney Foundation 2017

Dear Dialysis Training Institute LLC:

I am reaching out to introduce you to the National Kidney Foundation 2017 Spring
Clinical Meetings (SCM17)which is taking place April 18 – April 22, 2017 at the Walt
Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Fl. For over 25 years, SCM17 has
presented the latest insights and developments of chronic kidney disease to
nephrology professionals.

We would like to extend a complimentary registration to the students in your
dialysis technician program and we believe that they would highly benefit from
attending. At SCM registrants can attend numerous sessions with world renown
faculty. Additionally, there are many networking opportunities throughout the
week. For a full list of courses directly geared at technicians please check out our
program here. Technicians are now offered additional programming coordinated
by NANT’s Planning Committee, which includes a two-day program for clinical and
biomedical technicians.

If attending the conference is not an option, we recommend your students
become professional members with the National Kidney Foundation. One of the
many benefits of this membership includes access to our Professional Education
Resource Center (PERC),which hosts FREE online CME/CE’s! This offering will be
very useful for technicians following their graduation from your program so they
can remain certified! We update the courses monthly, so professionals have
continuous access to new learning opportunities and can keep up with leading
trends and best practices related to chronic kidney disease.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above please do not hesitate to
contact me.
Best Regards, Kathy

Obituary – Marie Rose Lieb

Sad News to Report

On Thursday, October 20, 2016 Marie Rose Lieb, “Mama Marie” to her friends, staff and patients, died after a prolonged illness in her home, surrounded by her husband Thom and their two daughters. Marie, was a founding Member of the Dialysis Training Institute and could see my vision for the future of dialysis training long before anyone else believed a school founded on the principle of excellence in education to train dialysis nurses and technicians could actually survive and more than that she put her money where her mouth was, when in 2000 Marie became a founding member and partner of this groundbreaking institution. In the early days of DTI, Marie taught classes on Saturday mornings, she was smart and quirky and the thing I remember most was the sound of her student’s laughter from down the hall. She was my friend, my partner and a nephrology nurse I deeply respected. She was a one of a kind and I will truly miss her.
