Student mentorship : early on with KDSAP

KDSAP( kidney disease screening and awareness program) is a program in Boston part of the Harvard Nephrology Division that mixes community screening and student mentorship. This community outreach program is called KDSAP and it enables high school and college students to perform kidney disease screening along with a paired mentor. While providing and volunteering their time for screening of the local population, the students are being exposed to renal medicine and nephrology and better yet: medicine in general. Mentorship breeds the emergence of fine physicians perhaps from this well structured program. Kudos to the team at Harvard for starting a channel of enthusiasm for medicine and service for the high school and college students. Check out a recent summary on this venture in Nephrology times and their main website at KDSAP
