NKFM Programs and Events Changes

You are here

The health and safety of anyone involved with our organization is very important to the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Below is more information about workshops and events that have been cancelled or postponed. After following the best practice guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and speaking with physicians, we feel it’s best to limit the number of people who are gathered together while the Covid-19 virus is heightened in Michigan. We will be in touch with any updates.
