Standing Up To Diabetes Starts With You

Standing Up To Diabetes Starts With You

As a health care provider, your role in knowing the risks factors and getting people on the right track before they get type 2 diabetes and supporting those who have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, is crucial to the health of Ontarians.

Along with the help of the Diabetes Education Programs, your Regional Coordination Centre, the Centres for Complex Diabetes Care, and other service providers in the community, it's possible to win the fight against diabetes!

In this section, you will find information about the diabetes care reports, as well as various tools that you can use to counsel those people that may be at risk of developing diabetes or are living with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
