Ananth Karumanchi, MD interviews David Calhoun, MD about refractory and resistant hypertension, a topic he presented on for Hypertension 2015 in Washington, DC.
Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is one of the most pressing public health problems arising from the worldwide diabetes pandemic. The need to improve awareness, detection, and intervention is urgent.
The Providence Medical Research Center is focused on advancing knowledge to improve the lives of people with DKD. They conduct cutting-edge discovery science to unravel the cellular and molecular basis of disease. Those discoveries are then translated to clinical trials, with a strong emphasis on improving the care delivered to real patients. The goal is simple - to discover more treatment options and one day, to ultimately find a cure and save lives.
