ABCs of Diabetes Learning

Part 1: How Diabetes Works This group program involves an in-depth conversation exploring what is happening inside the body of a person with type 2 diabetes. It also explores what happens if diabetes is not under control and some of the complications that can result.


Part 2: Healthy Eating and Keeping Active This group program focusses on the lifestyle changes that people with type 2 diabetes can make to have better quality of life and prevent or delay complications related to poor control of diabetes. Participants have a chance to determine changes they are willing to make related to healthy eating and keeping active, as well as identify any challenges they might face to making changes and how to overcome those challenges.
