Type 2 Diabetes Awareness Program
The Type 2 Diabetes Awareness Program started in October 2013. Residents learn what Type 2 diabetes is, how to run an educational workshop and other practical skills, like how to prepare a healthy meal.The peer leaders then go to our other sites and lead workshops to help bring awareness to this condition. The goal of this peer-to-peer program is to educate residents about the prevention of Type 2 diabetes, a serious chronic illness that cripples low-income and homeless populations in Toronto.
Homes First runs both internal and external diabetes prevention workshop. Interested in having a workshop for your clients? Contact the Community Development team!
