Vishal Bagchi

Promotion and Growth

MBA, RD, LD

Vishal has over 16 years of clinical, research, and speaking experience in nephrology and has devoted all of his adult career in the field of kidney failure. Vishal has received numerous awards for his work in nephrology including NKF Susan C. Knapp Award for the year 2020. Vishal’s passion for nephrology comes from his grandfather who eventually passed away due to CKD, something that he believes could have been avoided with preventative education. Many healthcare providers believe in treating a number but as Vishal quotes “Treat the patient, not the number,” as such he has made his life goal to educate as many people he can directly or indirectly. Vishal is highly involved in philanthropic work across the United States, India, South America, and Ghana where his organization helps local hospitals increase CKD education and access to dialysis to underserved communities.
