Take the first steps in journey to health from diabetes

West Shore added to list of Walk and Talk program sites

The Canadian Diabetes Association’s popular Walk and Talk program resumes next week.

Due to its success last year and with the support of the Victoria Foundation and other partners, the program will be offered in three locations including at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre.

This wellness program consists of eight weekly sessions and features talks by accredited health experts, followed by a walk. The discussions cover a range of issues around diabetes, including foot care, glycemic index, general motivation and more.

On the West Shore, the free program goes Tuesday mornings from 10 to 11:30, starting on March 29 and running to May 17. Participants are asked to register in advance. To sign up or find more information, go to diabetes.ca/WalkandTalkVictoria, email penny.murray@diabetes.ca or call 250-382-5454 ext. 222.
