Peer Outreach Leaders, Alethia Barrett and Lin Lin Chou, bring diabetes awareness to Daily Bread
November is Diabetes Awareness Month. In recognition of this, the West Toronto Diabetes Education Program (WTDEP) visited Daily Bread to shed some light on the effects of diabetes, as well as, where people can go for information and support. The WTDEP is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. They provide many services to the public for free of charge to help individuals understand diabetes with support, practical tools and guidance.
These services include:
• Group education sessions
• One-on-one consultations
• Cooking demonstrations
• Exercise classes
• Doctor or self-referral
• Other events (inquire within)
It is important that we not only recognize diabetes in the month of November, but all year round. Please spread the word and help raise awareness!
