It is endorsed by 16 national and international foundations and societies and rotated each year to various cities throughout the United States.

The conference brings together an international group of health professionals and researchers to discuss current developments in dialysis. It is designed for individuals in established dialysis programs as well as those in new and developing programs. The conference includes the 26th annual Symposium on Pediatric Dialysis and the 21st International Symposium on Home Hemodialysis. These are organized and held in cooperation with the North American Chapter of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis and the International Society for Hemodialysis (ISHD).
