Cobequid marks World Diabetes Day

Friday, November 15, 2013 - 3:51pm

Diabetes Management Centre staff at Cobequid Community Health Centre celebrate World Diabetes Day, November 14, to draw attention to this common health condition.

A display provided citizens with information on living well with diabetes, such as healthy eating, foot care, physical activity, and the opportunity to get their blood pressure checked.

The team of nurses and dietitians at Capital Health’s Diabetes Management Centres work with primary care providers in the community and an extended care team to educate patients with the knowledge, confidence and skills required to self manage their chronic condition for healthy living.  Patients who come to a Diabetes Management Centre learn more about diabetes prevention, self management and treatment.
