Enjoy a Better Life with Kidney Disease in No-Cost Virtual Workshop Series

If you are living with chronic kidney disease or you care for someone with kidney disease, consider attending the Kidney Personal Action Toward Health (KPATH) workshop presented by the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM). Offered at no cost to participants, the eight-week online workshop features a facilitator working with a small group to explore skills and tools to help people with kidney disease and their loved ones improve the quality of their lives.
