The 9th National Indigenous Diabetes Conference, “Food & Fitness as Medicine“, was held in K’jipuktuk – Halifax, Nova Scotia, April 16 – 18, 2018. The conference was intended to bring together Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative Workers, Indigenous front-line workers, leadership, Community Diabetes Prevention Workers, diabetes educators, health managers, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, academics, industry, and government representatives to learn about and share practices in diabetes prevention and self-management among Indigenous Peoples in Canada. It was designed to increase delegates’ knowledge, skill and awareness on healthy lifestyles as diabetes prevention and self-management, by incorporating traditional teachings and practices for wholistic wellness. The conference consisted of workshops, plenary sessions, and keynotes.

The conference also included a trade show for crafters, organizations and businesses to share their services and products.

Conference evaluation was conducted by Horizons Community Development Associates Inc. via web survey. Delegates received an email from the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association following the conference inviting them to participate in the survey, in either English or French. A reminder email was sent to delegates, and the deadline for feedback was extended from April 27 to May 3. The 2018 conference had 259 delegates. Of these delegates, 53 provided feedback on the conference through the
evaluation survey.
