Ayan Dey is an International Fellow in the department of Adult Nephrology at University Health Network, Toronto. He is originally from India where he is a certified nephrologist. He was awarded the Gold Medal for the highest score in his nephrology exit exam in India.
Ayan aspires to bring affordable quality care to CKD patients, especially in developing countries like India, where health care expenditure is borne by patients themselves. Getting an opportunity to volunteer for Kidney CARE Network International gave him an opportunity to work towards this aspiration. He envisions an international collaboration between North America and various developing countries like India, to work towards promoting kidney health and improving the lives of patients with CKD worldwide.
