Join the SONp today.  Enhance your career by helping children.


Our Section is the voice of pediatric nephrologists within the AAP.  We create educational material and provide expert advice to the AAP that benefits pediatric nephrology patients, general pediatricians, and pediatric nephrologists. 

The SONp amplifies the pediatric subspecialty advocacy voice, at both federal and state levels, on issues like access to care, workforce, training, education, research, payment, and other pediatric and pediatric nephrology issues.


SONp members develop leadership skills by serving on Internal Committees and Editorial Boards such as PREP® Nephrology, PREP®, AAP Grand Rounds, Pediatrics, and Pediatrics in Review.


Nominate yourself or a colleague in the section when a position on the PREP Nephrology Editorial Board becomes available (A subscription discount is available for section members).

Serve as faculty for nephrology related educational programs for general pediatricians at the AAP National Conference and Exhibition and Practical Pediatrics conferences.

Serve on the Executive, Nominations and Award Committees.
