Toronto Central LHIN Diabetes Program

Change is in the Air (July 2017)

The Toronto Central LHIN Diabetes Program’s name is changing to Toronto Diabetes Care Connect in order to better reflect the support we provide in this region. The official rebranding, scheduled for April/May 2017, has been a collaborative effort involving many of the diabetes programs in this region.

The rebranding will also include a new look for this website. It is our hope that the new website will make it easier to see what programs are available and to get connected to the program that best meet the needs of the person living with or at risk of diabetes.

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.” ~William A. Foster
