On Thursday, January 11, Joyce Williams spoke about the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM). The NKFM’s mission is to prevent kidney disease and to also care for those who have it. Most of the kidney disease in the U.S.. is caused by type 2 diabetes. People with prediabetes — higher-than-normal blood glucose (sugar) levels, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes — are 5 to 15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those with normal blood glucose levels. In fact, many people with prediabetes may be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes within 5 years
One of the NKFM’s most exciting and promising programs is the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The program is a yearlong program designed for people with prediabetes or at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, with the goal that participants will adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle. In April, Medicare will cover the program for its participants. It is the first prevention program that Medicare has ever funded.
Diabetes Prevention Program workshops are led by trained lifestyle coaches during weekly one-hour group sessions and eight monthly sessions that follow. Participants learn how to eat healthy, add physical activity to their routine, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes. The program’s group setting provides a supportive environment with people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes. Together, participants celebrate their successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.
There is a DPP workshop starting in Ann Arbor on Monday,February 5. Find out your risk via the risk test or sign up for DPP at

Joet, talked at our luncheon on January 4 2017, he retired from employment in 2004 to become a serial entrepreneur in the development of small businesses and volunteer community work.
Joet, works at Project Grow and Matthaei Botanical Garden. He described his work at the Matthaei Botanical Garden where he is responsible for their compost garden. Compost is a mixture that consists largely of decayed organic matter and is used for fertilizing and conditioning land.
Finally Joet talked, about his work on Comfrey Gardens at Project Grow.  Comfrey is a common name for plants in the genus Symphytum. Comfrey species are important herbs in organic gardening. It is used as a fertilizer and as an herbal medicine. Comfrey is a perennial herb with beautiful, bell-shaped flowers and large leaves.
Joet, became a member of Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North last year and is going to be a dedicated volunteer at our Butterfly Garden in Gallup Park.
