Webinars for those living with type 1 or 2 diabetes will be offered to residents of B.C. and the Yukon by the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Starting February 13, the Canadian Diabetes Association is offering a new series of educational diabetes webinars packed with relevant and up-to-date information for people living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes in British Columbia and Yukon. The webinars offer participants the convenience of viewership from home or any computer, plus the choice of attending webinars broadcast in group settings at host sites.


“These webinars will provide people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes free professional information, facilitated discussion and a new way to connect with others in the diabetes community,” says Leanne Morgan, senior manager, community programs and partnerships (BC and Yukon) at the Canadian Diabetes Association. “We hope to reach a diversified audience and serve residents in city, rural and even remote communities. Host sites are also being sought out for these spring webinar series.”


Residents from B.C. and Yukon can sign-up at no cost to attend any or all of the available two-hour webinars running from February to August 2014, with topics ranging from kids, food and nutrition to health, travel, foot care, and more. The CDA has worked diligently to create a highly-informative and engaging series, which feature radio personality and host Jessica Gares, experienced diabetes educators, health professionals and other knowledgeable speakers.


A list of topics, registration and further information is available at diabetes.ca/webinar. If you are interested in becoming a host site to host a live webinar for your community or have further program questions, please call toll-free at 1-800-665-6526, ext. 272.
