/R E P E A T - Flemingdon Health Centre launches new South Asian Diabetes Prevention Care Kit/

First culturally and language relevant Diabetes Prevention Care-Kit for South Asians in Canada

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Diabetes disproportionately affects South Asian communities as a result of genetics, lifestyle and socio-economic risk factors after resettling in Canada. Today, Flemingdon Health Centre will launch Canada's first multilingual diabetes prevention Care Kit aimed at reducing the risk factors and the impact of diabetes in South Asian communities.

This Care Kit is a new resource that complements Flemingdon Health Centre's successful South Asian Diabetes Prevention Program (SADPP). SADPP conducts Early Detection Clinics and Diabetes Prevention Workshops in the community setting. The Care Kit provides South Asians at risk of developing diabetes with a practical set of evidence-based tools to gain greater control of their personal health.

The kit was created with support from the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network and funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's Aging at Home Strategy.
