Diabetes program aims to help Indigenous residents in north Simcoe-Muskoka – OrilliaMatters

Kin-Nod-Mo-Win provides access to ‘culturally appropriate tools, education and traditional wisdom’

Centre de santé communautaire CHIGAMIK Community Health Centre (CSC CHIGAMIK CHC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new diabetes prevention and management program serving Indigenous communities in North Simcoe Muskoka.

The program, called Kin-Nod-Mo-Win, meaning “I will help you” in Ojibwe, will provide Indigenous people with access to culturally appropriate tools, education and traditional wisdom and care for individuals who are at risk of developing diabetes or living with the disease.

Diabetes Canada recently released a report — Diabetes 360˚: A Framework for a Diabetes Strategy for Canada — that states one in three people in Canada live with prediabetes or diabetes. That’s 11 million Canadians. Since 2000, the number of Canadians with diabetes has doubled. A 20-year-old in Canada now has a 50 per cent chance of developing the disease and this grows to 80 per cent within some Indigenous populations.
