Mississauga Diabetes Strategy – Have Your Say

By September 27, 2023Food for thought, Issues

What can we do to reduce the rates of Diabetes in Mississauga?

Type 2 diabetes is rapidly affecting a growing number of Mississauga residents. The City is working with partners, experts and communities to develop a strategy to prevent rising cases and protect residents’ health and well-being. Starting today, Monday, September 25, the City is asking residents to participate in an online survey. The survey will generate insights, identify areas of change that the City can take and will help develop the Mississauga Diabetes Strategy.

We want to hear from you

The City is looking to hear from as many community members and businesses as possible. Your input is critical to the success of this strategy.

Survey: Complete the online survey before Thursday, November 30, 2023.

The City will also engage in conversations with various communities throughout Mississauga, focusing on those with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. A health equity lens will be applied to ensure the needs of those most impacted by diabetes are considered, which would support changes that will benefit all citizens.

The City will work with the community, industry, agency and government partners to understand Mississauga’s unique type 2 diabetes challenges, identify community needs and priorities, build the strategy and determine the action plan.
