“Supporting the kidney health care community as part of this incredible NKF team has been the highlight of my career and I would like to dedicate this award to my staff for leaning into this work. Time and time again, they have pulled off what seems to be impossible, like pivoting so quickly and seamlessly many of our professional education activities to virtual events over the last year,” Joseph said in the release. “I am incredibly fortunate to work among such devoted colleagues and volunteers throughout my tenure at NKF.”

In her role as senior vice president, Joseph supervises the NKF’s professional education, membership activities, research grant program, meetings and events and the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative, according to the release.

“Last year, on very short notice, Jessica led the heroic and highly successful conversion of the meeting to a virtual event,” Paul Palevsky, MD, NKF president, said in the release. “Her work at NKF has touched thousands of lives.”

Joseph will be presented with the award at the virtual 2021 Spring Clinical Meetings, which will take place from April 6 to 10.
