IDHC’s Knowledge Department combines traditional wisdom with current diabetes education, incorporating First Nations, Métis, Inuit and mainstream influences. This program supports front line workers to plan, prepare and present relevant information about diabetes and Indigenous perspectives on health and wellness.
Our Knowledge Department has two key goals.
First, our goal is to provide culturally influenced content while educating on health and wellness as it relates to diabetes.
Second, our goal is to influence and inspire front line workers to educate and empower participants in their own communities in a safe learning environment that helps to nurture self awareness.

Based on the teachings of Grandmother Renée Thomas-Hill, to reclaim the overall health of our ancestors we need to reclaim the traditional knowledge of health and wellness from a holistic approach.
Our teachings are seen as a tool to support participants on their personal journey into restoring their mental, spiritual, emotional and physical balance and well-being, so they can better support their own communities.
