Prof. J. William McEvoy

NIPC Medical and Research Director, Chair of Executive Council

Dear alliance members, welcome to the April NIPC e-bulletin. I am delighted to announce that NIPC are again running the very popular course Chronic Kidney Disease and CVD – What every practitioner should know. Application deadline is 26th April so I highly encourage you apply as soon as you can.

This is a free, 3-month online course beginning with a live Zoom session on the 14th of May. Course lead, Dr. Niamh Kieran, Consultant Nephrologist, Galway University Hospital, has brought together a hugely experienced multidisciplinary team that will cover the latest advances in clinical practice and how integrated approaches can be best used for the prevention and management of CKD and CVD.

On the research side of NIPC we will toast the launch of EUROASPIRE-6 at the EAPC meeting in Athens later this month. I am also delighted to be receiving the ESC-EAPC Viviane Conraads Outstanding Achievement Award at the same meeting. No doubt this award reflects more on the entire NIPC team than on any one person.

Many Thanks
