During the winter, the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM) held a pre-diabetes workshop in partnership with the Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation.
And, the workshop went so well, NKFM is once again partnering with the CWF to offer a free workshop, this time to area residents who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
