Southeastern Kidney Disease Consortium

Improving the Lives of People with Kidney Disease


In  2012, we formed a consortium of Nephrologists in the Southeastern United States dedicated to improving patient care, research, education and communication among physicians who care for patients with kidney disease. The group is called the Southeastern Kidney Disease Consortium (SEKDC). The consortium is sponsored by the South Carolina Renal Disease Biomarkers SmartState Program (formerly South Carolina Centers of Economic Excellence Program). The consortium is directed by Dr. John Arthur in the Division of Nephrology.

 The goals of the SEKDC are to:

           Provide a forum for communication among nephrologists in the southeast.

          Disseminate clinical information to enhance prevention and treatment of kidney disease.

          Promote research collaborations between academic and private nephrologists.

           Facilitate communication with Federal agencies and National Societies to enhance research and patient care.
