A recent ep of #GreysAnatomy featured a black woman whose numbers didn't allow her onto the kidney transplant list - but #eGFR is calculated w/ false, dated assumptions abt black bodies. Thank you for highlighting these biases in medicine @EllenPompeo @shondarhimes @GreysABC!
We're glad to see #eGFR and race being talked about on tonight's #GreysAnatomy episode. The recent release of a race-free approach to eGFR from our joint Task Force with @ASNKidney is an important step in ensuring health and healthcare equity for all. kidney.org/news/nkf-and-asn-…
