Diabetes Conversation – Healthy Eating & Keeping Active

Tuesday, October 17th and Tuesday October 24th both sessions run from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Learn about Diabetes self-management in a new way. Not a lecture, not a presentation but a conversation with your peers about Diabetes. This interactive session is facilitated so that participants can share their experience of living with diabetes and learn information and skills along the way. We use a large colourful map as our discussion point to navigate the journey through healthy eating and keeping active.
The conversation occurs in 2 sessions. Participants should register for both sessions:

Pre-Registration at Front desk Reception. No cost to register.
