Transform Your Stress

Mar. 1, 2021

One year since the first COVID-19 public health orders were issued in Alberta, we’re still limiting our interactions with others, including friends and loved ones, and keeping physical distance from one another at work and in other public places.

November is diabetes awareness month, and we want to help you focus on creating a lifestyle that keeps you well along your lifelong health journey. Fun fact: type 2 diabetes is entirely preventable! This is a big deal because it’s completely within our power to manage our wellness and be a good example for others in our lives.
