What are Communities?
ASN Communities is an online platform where members can network, collaborate and discuss important issues in a members only environment. Like a chat room or online forum, you can write posts and others can reply, creating a "thread." To keep discussions organized, there are communities that house threads on particular topics, such as acute kidney injury, transplant or basic research. All these communities together make up the ASN Communities environment.
ASN members have unique profiles that allows them to connect to others with similar interests, or in similar locations. You control your privacy level. Email digests, which include a list of discussion topics in each community, can be sent out weekly, daily, or in real time. You can join the discussion by replying to digest emails or via the Communities website. Replies can be public to the entire thread or private to a particular author. Each community has a library to hold papers or presentations that supplement your discussion.
