IPNA Journal Club

The official Twitter journal club of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association



It is with great pleasure that IPNA announces the live Twitter journal club under the hashtag #IPNAJC.

The first round started on 14 and 15 July and covered three time zones (USA Eastern time, Central European summer time and India standard time) allowing global participation.

The first topic was picked to appeal to both the paediatric nephrology community and our adult nephrology colleagues.

Please follow IPNA Journal Club on Twitter under @ipnajc for the latest news. Please share this news to promote further paediatric nephrology education brought to you by IPNA.
