‘The Friend of IPNA’ Award was created in 2019 to recognize non-IPNA members sharing IPNA’s mission and goals. It recognizes support for IPNA activities through participation in IPNA initiatives or financial support of programs that improve the care of children with kidney diseases.
The first ‘Friend of IPNA’ Award was presented to Mr. Tibor Martinek (Canada) for his support of young pediatric nephrologists from East European countries in obtaining various grants to visit Canadian children hospitals, enrollment in clinical trials and to attend the Annual Pediatric Nephrology Seminar in Miami.
