AHA Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease Council Young Investigators Forum at Kidney Week

The American Heart Association is divided into 16 academic councils that spearhead important areas of investigation/research in cardiovascular disease. The Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease (KCVD) Council is made up of a diverse group of researchers whose mission is to find molecular and physiologic insights into why patients with kidney disease have such astronomical rates of cardiovascular disease. The KCVD is tasked with translating these findings to improve cardiovascular and kidney outcomes in patients with kidney disease.
