Thank you so much for electing me as your incoming 2021 Kidney Texas president and trusting me to lead our great organization this year.  I am so looking forward to serving with all of you to make this an extremely successful year.  Also, many thanks to all the members who have volunteered to serve on the board and various committees.  I think we have been blessed with a great team! My biggest hope is that we can all of us meet in person soon!  In the meantime, we will be using the means at hand: Zoom, email and phone.  
We will have a calendar of events on the website, so please put all relevant dates on your calendar.  I am hoping for maximum attendance, even if it is remotely.  My goal this year is to inform our membership about the latest developments and discoveries in the field of kidney disease and research and, at the same time, raise a record amount of funds to support both.  But, of course, I will not be able to do that without the help of all of you.  Thank you in advance for your support! All my best and very warm wishes for a wonderful 2021!
