Greenstone Family Health Team

I would like to express my gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the Six Week Diabetes Self-Management Workshops facilitated by Brenda St. Amand and Terri Horan. These workshops were extremely beneficial in providing information about diabetes, diabetes management, food guidelines and other health care requirements for diabetic people. It made me much more aware of my ability to self-manage my diabetes and it provided the support of my peers to encourage continued good practices.

It was identified at these sessions that there is a real need for a peer support group in the community of Geraldton. I am taking steps to work with Terri to ensure that a support group is initiated in the new year.

Thank you again for the ability to access this information. This program is extremely beneficial to those with diabetes by providing education and raising awareness of required health care needs. I would like to see this program continue and be accessible to more people in the community.
