Thorofare, NJ – Healio | Nephrology News & Issues is excited to announce its restructured editorial advisory board, which features a new Chair and three additional Associate Editors from various subspecialty areas within nephrology. The newly restructured board will assist in content selection and act as ambassadors for the publication beginning this month.

Healio | Nephrology News & Issues strives to be the definitive information source for nephrologists by delivering timely, accurate, authoritative and balanced reports on clinical issues, socioeconomical topics and specialty industry developments. The editorial advisory board supports the publication in offering readers information that spans the spectrum of kidney disease and treatment.

“Healio | Nephrology News & Issues provides the kidney care community with a unique platform for commentary and review of important legislative, economic, regulatory and clinical issues,” says Jay B. Wish, MD, chair. “I am looking forward to leading the Editorial Board in expanding that approach to rapidly provide our readers with information that spans the spectrum of kidney disease and its treatment.”

Wish has served as co-chair alongside Thomas A. Golper, MD, FACP, FASN, in leading the Board for the past 19 years. Golper will remain as Chair Emeritus.

“My involvement with leading the editorial advisory board has been predicated on the Healio | Nephrology News & Issues staff delivering relevant news and information to the kidney community,” Golper says. “I am confident that Jay, our new associate editors and the editorial advisory board will continue to help lead that effort.”

Wish is Professor of Clinical Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine and Chief Medical Officer for outpatient dialysis at Indiana University Health.
