Connections: Cooking for your kidneys with John Vito


John Vito lost his restaurant and cooking career when kidney failure nearly killed him. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, he got the coverage he needed to survive, and he's found a way to keep cooking. His new project is called Cooking for Your Kidneys, a video series designed to help people who love to eat but are living with kidney disease.

John is always a colorful interview, and he discusses his own story, and his new venture. Our guests:

  • John Vito, Cooking for Your Kidneys
  • Mary Wier, registered dietician
