Empowering diabetes prevention

Nearly seven million Canadians are living with prediabetes — that’s one in every five citizens. And 70 percent of those individuals will develop type 2 diabetes, which has debilitating, life-threatening effects. At this webinar, expert Dr. Mary Jung from UBC’s Okanagan campus will speak about the community-run diabetes prevention program Small Steps for Big Changes, which helps those with prediabetes develop tools to make lasting dietary and fitness changes to lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Alumni, community members, and friends of UBC are invited to find out how you and your loved ones can ensure a healthy future.
