Thanks for the amazing participation following our call for nominations for the NephJC Kidney Awards. NephTwitter once again has answered the call. Your participation is what makes working in nephrology social media so rewarding.
Though we did not announce any rules, we do not award NephJC Kidneys to members of the NephJC work group, that said two of our team were nominated this year so we'd like to give a shout out to Dearbhla Kelly and Benjamin Stewart. Both of them graduated in the second NSMC intern class and have continued to do great work for NephJC as hosts at short notice and helping with the PubMed comments (DK) and the Storify archiving (BS). Thank you.
With no further ado, here are your nominees for the 2017 NephJC Kidneys...
