Happy World Kidney Day 2014! Thanks to the guys from NephMadness 2014 for being guests on Episode 326 of the Mike Sevilla Radio Program. In the video above, you'll see the opening moments of the show.
The idea for NephMadness pairs together National Kidney Awareness Month (which is this month of March) and the US NCAA National Basketball tournament (also known as "March Madness"). The beginning of our podcast interview talk about what a "Nephrologist" is and why they are important for patients and the US healthcare system.
We then talked about NephMadness 2014 which begins this Sunday, March 16, 2014 at their NephMadness website. Participants get to select teams who will advance in their "tournament" and you will have the opportunity to select the eventual winner of the tournament.
In NephMadness, you will learn more about the specialty of Nephrology and why kidney function is important - especially for particular diagnoses like Diabetes. Last year, there was a lot of fun on twitter in which people were "trash talking" others and their picks. Follow the fun this year using the hashtag #NephMadness
