Mexico City is a fascinating capital that beguiles its visitors with endless options. One of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, with 16 boroughs and more than 300 neighborhoods, it might seem a bit overwhelming to the first-time visitor, though it doesn’t have to be. Many of the most visited tourist attractions in Mexico City are concentrated in the historic center, including the Plaza de la Constitucion or Zocalo, the National Palace, Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor, Palace of Fine Arts and Alameda Park. A few blocks north of the Palace of Fine Arts, Plaza Garibaldi is one of the best places in Mexico City to hear live mariachi music.

World Congress of Nephrology

ISN’s biennial World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) is the premiere educational event in nephrology which rotates between continents and is organized in collaboration with local and regional nephrology societies. The congress is targeted to the international nephrology community as well as other healthcare professionals involved in multidisciplinary nephrology care, thus enabling professionals from all parts of the world to exchange views on a wide variety of topics affecting nephrology and those suffering from kidney disease around the world.

For the first time, an international nephrology congress focuses on diabetes and kidney disease, a worldwide problem, but one very important to Latin America and Mexico in particular. Join the ISN World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) in Mexico City from April 21 to 25, 2017.

Uniquely placed as a truly global meeting, WCN gives access to international medical expertise in renal treatment, research and care, from bench to bedside. You will get a genuinely enriching and professional exchange of knowledge with world-renowned nephrologists, and endocrinologists at this meeting.

The scientific program is complemented by novel Nephrology Biennial Review (NBR) courses given in three languages, covering the most important research of the past two years from various fields within nephrology. You can also participate in hands-on courses on Interventional Nephrology, organized jointly with the Brazilian Society of Nephrology, as well as lectures on Renal Pathology, Renal Systems Biology, clinical epidemiology and clinical trials, which will be given by some of the most highly-respected peers within THE field, from multiple countries.

Maintaining sustainable kidney health on a global scale through education and training is our mission for each congress. WCN 2017 is your chance to connect with the nephrology community in a compact setting, and take advantage of this great opportunity to interact with colleagues as well as explore and understand the critical importance of diabetic kidney disease.
