Join the HEAL family

We can reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases with nutritious food and physical activity. Studies in Canada, the US, the UK and elsewhere make that clear.

Yet the risk of diabetes has skyrocketed in recent years. Now even children are developing Type 2 diabetes while they down hot dogs and chips and watch TV.

If you grow a garden, eat healthy food, canoe, chop wood or take the dog for a walk, you are already involved in healthy eating and active living.

If you teach fitness, council people with chronic diseases, provide nutritional services, cater, farm, build trails, advise patients to exercise, organize school meal programs or lead a walking club, we want you to join the HEAL family.
