KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Chocolate Fest 2011 will be held on March 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Knoxville Center Mall.

New this year, a group of current patients - including transplant recipients - as well as social workers, nurses and other health care providers will be available to answer questions and provide information about kidney disease.
Also this year, Medic Blood Centers will be holding a blood drive in conjunction with Chocolate Fest. Anyone who donates blood during the festival will receive a free Chocolate Fest ticket.
Another addition this year, Premier Surgical Associates will set up an Ultrasound machine and provide a technician to do Carotid screenings.
