A Community Conversation: Managing Diabetes During COVID-19 and Beyond (Thursday, July 16 at 7:00 pm via ZOOM)
Diabetes affects broad segments of our community. However, the prevalence of diabetes across different groups varies. Research shows that people of African, Caribbean, South Asian, and Indigenous descent are disproportionately impacted.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, people with diabetes who become infected are at a greater risk of developing serious symptoms and complications. If you, a friend, or family member lives with diabetes, this virtual town hall will be insightful.
Join the Canadian Caribbean Association of Halton (CCAH), the Oakville Hospital Foundation, and the Halton Diabetes Program for a virtual town hall about steps that can be taken to delay and/or manage diabetes during COVID-19 and beyond. There will also be an announcement about how CCAH is supporting this important program.
The Youth Leadership Program offered in partnership with the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS), Oakville Community Foundation (OCF), and Sheridan College will be transformed into a virtual format as a result of the current situation with COVID-19.
We will restructure last year’s format of three 8-hour development workshops into four 4-hour virtual sessions using the Zoom platform. This online program is FREE! You must have access to ZOOM to participate.
Workshop #1: "Becoming a Leader" - Saturday, July 25, 2020 Workshop #2: "Community Policing, Safety and Well-Being" - Saturday, August 15, 2020 Workshop #3: "Mastering Soft Skills to Achieve Your Potential” - Saturday, August 22, 2020 Workshop #4: "Preparing for Post-secondary Education" - Saturday, September 12, 2020
Register now to reserve your spot! Community service completion certificates will be issued to participants.
