The history of the ISRNM
During the preceding years negotiations had begun with the National Kidney Foundation (USA) and resulted in future co-sponsorship of the Journal of Renal Nutrition. The Proceedings of this Congress were published in this and in future editions of the Journal with Co-Editors Denis Fouque and Jordi Goldstein-Fuchs (15). The social programme included the official opening ceremony in the splendid Aula Magna “Galileo Galilei” of the “Bo Palace” at the Old University of Padua. One of the scientific sessions ending with a concert was held at the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista in Venice (with many famous paintings by Tinteretto). The Farewell Conference Dinner was held at the Relais Golf in Montechia.
