National Indigenous Diabetes Awareness Day.

May 2, 2022

The First Day in May.
Established in 1999 by AFN Chief Phil Fontaine to help our communities know about the rise in type 2 diabetes.

“Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions across North America, but it is a much more disabling and deadly disease for First Nations peoples as a result of poor diets and lack of access to medical services,” said National Chief Fontaine.

Let’s learn all we can about diabetes and the complications that can arise.
