The South Asian Diabetes Prevention Program (SADPP) is an innovative project developed by Flemingdon Health Centre (FHC) in collaboration with Social Services Network and is funded by the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TC LHIN) through the Aging at Home funding.
Early Detection Clinics The program outreaches and conducts Diabetes early-detection clinics in the community using evidence based screening tool tailored for the South Asians risk factors: A first-step check-up to identify those who are at risk of developing diabetes. The same day a prediabetes awareness workshop is delivered.
Participants learn how to make lifestyle changes that are necessary to prevent diabetes. Participants are provided with the newly developed Diabetes Prevention Care Kit to further enhance their self management skills and information
Those identified through our screening process to be at-risk of developing diabetes are referred to their family physician to complete the Second-Step check up and confirm if they are at high risk (prediabetes diagnosis). Those already living with diabetes are referred to management programs.
