Renew, Restore, Refresh

Join us for the CHMK Women’s Wellness Retreat.  Women (18+) from all walks of life affected by Type 1 Diabetes will be immersed in social connection and emotional wellness, through a balance of relaxation and fun, while engaging in sessions and camp activities designed to build camaraderie and support.
