Diabetes Conversations

The Huronia NPLC Diabetes Conversations is a four-part series led by a Diabetes Educator, to help participants learn more about managing their diabetes. Topics include managing and preventing diabetes, how to make changes, overcome challenges and explore what happens if diabetes is not under control. The sessions allow participants to learn from each others experiences, which can be valuable for adult learning, self-management and inspiration for behavioural change. The program uses Conversation Map visuals and tools.

The weekly series are free and open to the community.

Next dates for DIABETES CONVERSATION are:

May 1, 8, 15, 22, 2018
From 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

The DIABETES CONVERSATIONS will be taking place at the clinic and are free and open to the community. To register, please contact us at (705) 835-7545. For more information, please see the events calendar.

Walking Program

We all know that regular exercise is required to prevent and manage chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and chronic obstructive lung disease.

The Huronia NPLC is offering a Walking Program beginning in the Spring, to all members of the community living with a chronic condition.

The program allows participants to exercise at a safe level, encourages and incorporates warm up, cool down as well as self-monitoring of blood pressure, heart rate and blood glucose with all exercise sessions.  Each session focuses on a different preventative health topic such as skin health, bone health, urban poling, nutrition and diabetes. All facilitators are Heart Wise Certified.
