Ask the Doctor
Questions about kidney disease? Risk factors? Signs and symptoms? Are you concerned about yourself, a friend or family member? Ask Dr. Spry.
The National Kidney Foundation once again teamed up with acclaimed Dallas Chefs, Scott Gottlich of Bijoux and William Koval of the Lakewood Country Club for the third annual Bonne Santé, food and wine showcase. The event featured 17 award winning chefs from Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as top chefs from around the country, each preparing signature dishes paired with fine wines. Bonne Santé is a mix and mingle affair where guests can sample dishes and wines while taking part in a live and silent auction benefiting the National Kidney Foundation.
This year's, Honorary Chair and Gift of Life Award recipient was Dr. Goran Klintmalm of the Baylor Transplant Center. At Bonne Santé the inaugural Burl Osborne Awareness Award was presented to Dr. Peter Ivanovich and JCPenney. Burl, a board member of both the National Kidney Foundation and JCPenney, passed away in 2012 and was a pioneering kidney transplant recipient who led the Dallas Morning News for 21 years.
