¡Bienvenidos!

Welcome to the Renal Scientific Interest Group,

We are excited about your interest in joining our group.  The HCHS/SOL Renal Scientific Interest Group (SIG) was formed in January 2013 with the goal of increasing collaboration of kidney disease-related research among HCHS/SOL Investigators and the nephrology scientific community.  In October of 2015 the Renal SIG published the results of a study evaluating the prevalence and correlates of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Hispanics/Latinos in the United States. Current research activities include the evaluation of the association between clinical, behavioral, and genetic factors with CKD. The HCHS/SOL Renal SIG meetings are held via conference call on the third Thursday morning of each month at 11:30Eastern / 10:30Central.

We look forward to your joining us in our monthly calls. New ideas are welcome!
