ITK: World Diabetes Day

Event Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2012

November 14 is World Diabetes Day. Responding to rising rates of obesity and diabetes among Inuit, ITK, in collaboration with national and regional Inuit organizations, has created a series of bingo cards to educate Inuit about country foods, healthy activities, cultural items and kinship terms.

Look for your bingo cards, being distributed now in Inuit communities by the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services and the Nunatsiavut Government.

Want to spearhead an activity that promotes physical activity and well-being in your community? In March, ITK participated in the launch of Just Move It, an online directory of physical activity initiatives in Aboriginal communities throughout Canada and the United States. Please visit
