In the past few weeks I have been working on two presentations. The first was to Genzyme's scientists and the second was grand rounds at Providence. I have been spending way too much time working on those two talks. Thankfully the bones of both talks were the same. I spoke on the problem of chronic kidney disease on the elderly, specifically whether CKD was over diagnosed (yes it is) in this population and can it be safely ignored (no it can't).
I'm not completely through the gauntlet yet. I still have to provide a chapter on lifestyle modification for the control of blood pressure.
But I can't describe the awesome feeling of relief from delivering the grand rounds this morning.
For those of you with iWork and Keynote here is the presentation:
The Two Faces of Geriatric CKD
