The ASN (American Society of Nephrology) meeting was one of the highlights of the year (about the same time as the annual meetings of the AIChE and ACS  [American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the American Chemical Society])- plus the May meeting for ASAIO (American Society for Artificial Internal Organs) that provided lots of great opportunities to learn and network for me.  (As I got older and could more easily travel overseas, the EDTA [European Dialysis and Transplant Association] garnered my attention, too.)
