Diabetes Education Program

Tyendinaga's Diabetes Education Team through the Ontario Diabetes Strategy, consists of a Diabetes Nurse Educator and a Registered Dietician, both of whom are located at the Community Wellbeing Centre. The team's approach is to look at Diabetes holistically while providing education through hands on learning (cooking classes), individual, group, and family sessions.

The Ontario Diabetes Strategy is funded through the Ministry of health. The ultimate goal of the ODS is to ensure that people affected by Diabetes will receive the necessary health care services that they require to maintain health and lead productive lives. The focus of our team is to provide assessment, education and follow-up needs to anyone with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

To access the Team - Our Education team will take referrals from Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, or any one on your health team! You can also set up your own appointment by giving us a call.
