Greg introduced Lesley Stevens, Tufts New England Medical Center, as a new member of the LWG and the lead on an NKDEP group developing provider guidelines on CKD and drug dosing. Maria Graziani was introduced as an IFFC WG-SAU corresponding member from Verona, Italy. There is substantial overlap in membership in these three groups.
