Plugged In

Are you “Plugged In”?

The BC & Yukon Branch of The Kidney Foundation of Canada is pleased to launch “PLUGGED IN!” on Kidney BCY TV (BCY stands for BC & Yukon). 


An entertaining but educational new magazine show about everything kidney. We want to keep you informed, inspired and in the know.

We will cover topics like:

  • Your kidney health: preventative information and tips on how to keep your kidneys healthy
  • What you need to know about Kidney disease: risk factors, symptoms, treatment options etc.
  • Organ donation and transplantation: the importance of organ donation, miracle of transplantation, and the gap between supply and demand for organ transplant…
  • ... and much more! 

Our goal is to create fun show with informal conversations about topics that are important to the kidney community and the public-at-large. One of the best ways for us do this is through stories – powerful stories – from those living with kidney disease and the many heroes who help save their lives everyday.
