Pharmacy Initiative

STOP DIABETES FOUNDATION TO LAUNCH NEW INITIATIVE

BRAMPTON, ON – STOP Diabetes Foundation is partnering with community pharmacies to launch a new initiative in Peel Region this fall. Starting in October, pharmacies are inviting members of the public to complete a CANRISK assessment to review the risk of developing diabetes. The assessment is free and available at participating IDA, Guardian, Sobeys, Freshco and Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy locations.

The CANRISK assessment is a 12-point questionnaire that can be completed during a pharmacy visit. The pharmacist will review factors such as demographics and lifestyle which can contribute to development of diabetes, and provide personalized recommendations to reduce the risk of developing diabetes. The assessment is available to all members of the public.

The STOP Diabetes Foundation, led by Brampton endocrinologist Dr. Harpreet Bajaj, is powered by healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, dietitians and pharmacists who volunteer their time and experience to raise awareness for the importance of prevention of diabetes. Presently, Peel Region has the highest incidence of diabetes within Ontario – more than one in seven adults is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, with many more at risk. STOP Diabetes Foundation’s mission is to remove this infamous tag of Peel Region as the Diabetes Capital of Ontario by 2020.

STOP Diabetes Foundation’s awareness initiatives promote regular physical exercise, an active lifestyle and a balanced diet to reduce the risk of developing diabetes. The organization has been invited to present at local senior’s groups, women’s groups, workplace associations, food banks, and community health fairs, as well as hosting the annual SDF awareness event; this year’s guest was the record-breaking centenarian marathon runner Fauja Singh.
