The Role

A personal, wholistic, culturally relevant and pre-structured response program to diabetes will support a greater number of families to prevent the disease, understand the implications of diabetes in their families and to progress through the myriad levels of support more quickly and effectively.  This will create significant improvement to the quality of life for a greater number of Métis families affected by diabetes.
