What Is The Diabetes GPS?

The Diabetes GPS is an interactive microsite developed with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada to help people with diabetes including those from the Chinese, South Asian and African Caribbean communities’ access credible information that is culturally appropriate and available in his or her own language. Download our mobile application from the i-tunes, Android or Blackberry stores.

The Diabetes GPS resources are also available in printed form at our community based events, please check our events listing on diabetes.ca.

This project is driven by an Interdisciplinary Advisory Committee, ranging from persons living with diabetes; Association staff; healthcare professionals and other community stakeholders continuing the legacy of the Association’s Chinese Advisory Committee based in Vancouver, BC. The content for the Diabetes GPS is based on the work of the National Nutrition Committee and the National Nutrition Education Committee.
