NephCure Kidney International Announces NKN Steering Committee Co-Chairs October 2, 2014 by Chelsey Fix We are pleased to share that Kathleen Broderick and Randall Snyder were recommended and have accepted their nominations as Steering Committee Co-Chairs for the NephCure Kidney Network (NKN). Kathleen was considered a strong candidate due to her dual experience as a patient caregiver as well as a patient advocacy representative. Similarly, Randy’s dual perspective as a patient caregiver and clinical provider give him unique insight relevant to the NKN. Kathleen is a member of the NephCure Board of Directors and Research Committee and an editor at DeGruyter Publishing, a Science, Technology, and Medicine (STM) publisher of professional books and scholarly journals in Boston, Massachusetts. Additionally, Kathleen cares for her 16-year-old son, who was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome at 20 months. Randy is an interventional radiologist with his master’s in molecular biology living in Medford, New Jersey, who cares for his son who was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Kathleen and Randy will be facilitating Steering Committee calls and communication moving forward. Please join us in welcoming Kathleen and Randy as the inaugural NKN Steering Committee Co-Chairs!
