Group Name: Anishnawbe Health Toronto – Diabetes Education & Management
Description: Anishnawbe Health Toronto (AHT) is a vision of the late Elder, Joe Sylvester. Initial efforts began with a diabetes research project, which realized that a more comprehensive approach to health care was needed by the Aboriginal community. As a fully accredited community health centre, AHT offers access to health care practitioners from many disciplines including Traditional Healers, Elders and Medicine People. Ancient ceremonies and traditions, intrinsic to our health care model are available.
Our multi-disciplinary team of Dieticians, Diabetic Nurse Educators, Social Workers and a Chiropodist provides individual, family, and caregiver support for diabetes. Our culturally-based program integrates Traditional and Western approaches to provide health education and help prevent complications of diabetes. In addition to providing education and support, our services include: oral medication, disease management, insulin monitoring and management, nutritional counselling, foot care, and lifestyle management.
