The prevalence of type 2 diabetes continues to increase worldwide. Globally, it’s expected to double in the next 20 years. In Canada, diabetes affects about 8% of the population overall, and 1 in 10 adults.


As a society, we spend a lot of time, energy, and money thinking, talking and writing about ways to be healthier, feel better and live longer. You don’t need to look far for the evidence. Getting our kids in shape. Lowering our cancer risk. How to survive an overdose. All of the above have been topics of this blog in the last few months.


On the first of November, 11 Calgary veterans moved into their new community, the Homes for Heroes village. Beautifully designed tiny homes are adjacent to a resource centre, a family suite and community gardens. A counsellor is onsite.
