The growing prevalence of diabetes and other chronic diseases in Ontario reinforces the need for evidence-based, targeted, population-level prevention strategies and programs. As such, the Government of Ontario has committed to helping Ontarians lead healthy lives by investing in programs and services that target risk factors among a range of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity and cardiovascular disease.

In this webinar, you will learn about Ontario's Primary Care Diabetes Prevention Program (PCDPP) - Group Lifestyle BalanceTM, an internationally recognized, best practice program consistently shown to be effective in reducing risk for diabetes and other chronic diseases. You will learn about the results of Ontario's demonstration project to pilot the program in Family Health Teams across Ontario and hear stories from the field and practical considerations from Ontario's PCDPP Lifestyle Coaches and Master Trainers who have firsthand knowledge and experience running the program since its inception in 2011. You will also be introduced to an exciting new implementation manual to support your organization to plan, implement and evaluate this program.

 
 This webinar is hosted by the Nutrition Resource Centre (NRC) and Physical Activty Resource Centre (PARC).
