Eneanya is a nephrologist and assistant professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania where she discusses the controversy surrounding the use of race to diagnose and manage kidney disease. She is a clinical investigator with research interests centered on palliative care. Viewers will be informed about the decision-making and racial inequalities among patients with advanced chronic kidney disease and end-stage kidney disease. She will unpack the impact of structural racism on Black individuals in the United States, the history and pitfalls of miscalculated equations, and the future approaches to defining kidney function without race.
