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.

  • This year's "Your Health Matters" Calendar is a product partnership between the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and the Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario (ISWO) 
The National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario (ISWO) have partnered to develop the 2019 Your Health Matters Calendar. ISWO has shared pictures and information about a number of Indigenous athletes who are Wellness Warriors and have taken part in the "Wellness Warrior"campaign, developed by Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario. Though sharing about their paths and journeys, the athletes in the calendar hope to inspire and influence others to get involved in sport and physical activity. 
As with previous NADA calendars, each day on the calendar has three spots to record blood sugar levels if you are a person living with diabetes and conducting regular tests. Self-testing your blood sugar (blood glucose) can be an important tool in managing your treatment plan and preventing long-term complications of diabetes. 
All the best in 2019!
