Canadian Researchers Lauded for their Work

Two Canadians researchers have been awarded International Distinguished Medals from the National Kidney Foundation (NFK) in the United States. Dr. Adeera Levin of British Columbia and Dr. Amit Garg of Ontario were two of four medal recipients celebrated during the President’s Dinner at the 2015 Spring Clinical Meetings.

Kidney Foundation volunteers are part of the ripple effect
Like a stone thrown in a lake, volunteer efforts make a positive impact, far and wide, to improve communities. Our volunteers work tirelessly to raise awareness of kidney disease and organ donation, raise funds to make our work possible, and raise spirits when a helping hand is needed most.

This year, during National Volunteer Week (April 12-18), we would like to take a moment to celebrate the volunteers among us and say Thank You and feature profiles of some of our volunteers.


The Federated Health Charities 2015 Campaign is Underway
Federated Health Charities is a coalition of 16 provincially-based health charities in Ontario, including The Kidney Foundation of Canada, and is dedicated to raising funds for its members within the Ontario Public Service that will support health education and awareness, medical research, and client and patient services.
