Toronto Diabetes Care Connect, previously known as the Toronto Central LHIN Diabetes Program, is a regional (city-wide) program that is hosted by South Riverdale Community Health Centre (SRCHC) and funded by the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network.
The aim of the program is to help people living with or at risk of diabetes (and other chronic diseases) to get the high quality care they need to reduce their risk of diabetes or diabetes-related health problems.
We do this in part by offering the Toronto Central Referral Service (TCRS), which easily can connect individuals living with or at risk of diabetes to the following diabetes programs across the Toronto Central Region and often beyond:
Diabetes Education Programs:
- healthcare provider led programs supporting type 2 diabetes management and prevention
- 17 community-based programs are located in this region including the Diabetes Education Community Network of East Toronto (DECNET), located at South Riverdale Community Health Centre.
- yearly diabetes eye screening for people with type 2 diabetes at a number of locations across the city, including South Riverdale Community Health Centre
Choose Health Self-Management Program:
- peer-led group workshops that support people around improving their skills around self-management
Diabetes Prevention Programs:
- healthcare provider-led group programs that help people learn how they can lower their risk of developing type 2 diabetes
- Special programs are available that focus on Aboriginal, Caribbean, East African, Latin American, and South Asian populations
