South Asians represent the largest visible minority in Canada, and have the highest rates of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke in Ontario. Peel Region alone, is home to over 300,000 South Asians. Through this community-based educational program, SANSAR aims to reduce diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk factors amongst South Asians in our community.
The purpose of this program is to empower the South Asian community to reduce, and manage their heart disease and diabetes risk through education, lifestyle interventions and support.
Culturally-appropriate and sensitive group classes will cover topics including South Asian diet and cooking, exercise, stress reduction, smoking cessation, medication adherence, etc.
