Event Description:

Stepanie Lopez, Public Health Nurse from Toronto Public Health and her colleague Jane gave an informative and interactive presentation on diabetes and diabetes prevention.

Participants had their height, weight, and waist circumference assessed. Individual profile assessments were performed to define each participant’s own risk to type 2 diabetes.

The presenters also discussed:

  • The difference between Type 1 and 2 diabetes

  • How to prevent type 2 diabetes

Everyone learned the importance of performing physical activity everyday to maintain good health.
