Optimal health and quality of life for adults living with, affected by or at risk for diabetes.
We aim for excellence in providing timely, accessible diabetes education for self-management support for adult clients. In collaboration with health care partners we strive to ensure that clients receive the most appropriate care. The social determinants of health are the lenses through which we assist clients in achieving their personal diabetes self-management goals.
