    I also stood on the shoulders of giants Dr. Murray Levin and Dr. Daniel Batlle during my Fellowship Training at Northwestern University in Chicago 1998-2000. Shortly after my Fellowship Training, I stood on 2 more giant shoulders – Dr. Jeffrey Berns and Dr. Allen Nissenson who supported me in editing my first Nephrology Text which was published in 2008. Thanks for all the support!!!

    Very much appreciate the kind words, Edgar. One of my highest goals is to encourage younger colleagues to pursue their passions in medicine and you are a great example!
