Dr. Sherene Mason | Division Head and Inaugural Robert R. Rosenheim Endowed Chair of Nephrology

The Robert R. Rosenheim Endowed Chair for Nephrology represents a growing partnership between Connecticut Children’s and the Robert R. Rosenheim Foundation. In 2018, the Foundation made a gift to Connecticut Children’s to help establish the state’s first and only pediatric outpatient dialysis center, The Robert R. Rosenheim Foundation Dialysis Center. Most recently, the Foundation continued to honor the legacy of their founder, Robert R. Rosenheim, by establishing the Robert R. Rosenheim Endowed Chair for Nephrology.

In following Mr. Rosenheim’s wishes to support children and pediatric causes, the Robert R. Rosenheim Foundation is making Connecticut Children’s vision to improve the lives of kids with critical kidney disease a reality. Thanks to the Rosenheim Foundation’s support, Dr. Mason and her team will continue to advance the field of pediatric nephrology, offering care and comfort to families and piloting new best practices that will benefit children throughout our region and beyond.

Join us in congratulating Dr. Mason on her new leadership role and thanking our partners at the Robert R. Rosenheim Foundation for their generous contributions in support of Pediatric Nephrology at Connecticut Children’s.
