Diabetes Education Program
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC, FOR THE SAFETY OF STAFF, PATIENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS, WE WILL BE SUSPENDING ALL IN PERSON GROUP CLASSES AND IN PERSON CLINICAL VISITS.
PATIENTS CAN CONTINUE TO RECEIVE COUNSELLING BY PHONE OR VIRTUALLY WHERE POSSIBLE.
Please call 416-740-2810 for more information.
In the meantime, we will be moving toward delivering some group classes virtually. Patients can participate either on their mobile devices or they can phone in.
In order to participate virtually, we will be asking all patients to provide us with their email address so that we can send them the link to Zoom (the platform we will be using to deliver these virtual group classes).
The Diabetes Program offers patients education and counselling to help you manage your diabetes and prevent complications.
The Diabetic team can help you with:
- Foot assessment and care
- Nutrition education and planning
- How and when to take your medications
- The importance of monitoring your blood sugar
- Self care education and planning that is specific to you
