    Sri Lekha Tummalapalli completed nephrology fellowship and a Master's in Clinical Research at University of California, San Francisco. She did her internal medicine residency at Mount Sinai Hospital and MD/MBA degree at Harvard. She is a member of the Kidney Health Research Collaborative and serves on the American Society of Nephrology Quality Committee, and previously the Policy and Advocacy Committee.

    Her research evaluates population health and value-based strategies to deliver high quality care for patients with kidney disease. Her work has demonstrated that patients with CKD have had substantial gaps in chronic disease management and quality of care over the past decade. She has shown that Medicaid expansion is not associated with improvements in kidney disease awareness or primary care delivery using quasi-experimental research designs. Her work with national professional organizations on quality measurement and alternative payment models in kidney disease has influenced national policies incorporated in the Advancing American Kidney Health initiatives.
