Branch-Specific Description

The MNO Indigenous Diabetes Prevention Program proposes to improve our current response to the issue of diabetes support and prevention throughout its communities by adding to the current strategy. The new vision for the MNO’s diabetes strategy will improve the implementation of both preventive and supportive activities. This will increase the MNO’s ability to provide awareness and education across the province. The new provincial diabetes coordinator will work collaboratively with other MNO stakeholders to develop a portable, easily accessible client-based program to address prevention of diabetes and healthy living and to help mitigate the effects of diabetes. A personal, holistic, 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.
