It has been just a month since our new partners from the City of Mississauga in Canada joined the network, and developments are already swinging into action. The municipality website now features a sub-site for Cities Changing Diabetes in Mississauga, showcasing its purpose, mission and milestones.  

Mississauga’s goal for the Cities Changing Diabetes programme is to bring down rates of type 2 diabetes by focusing on reducing obesity and increasing disease prevention to limit the rise of the disease. 

Through its Cities Changing Diabetes partnership, the City is looking to understand its specific diabetes situation better, unite stakeholders behind a common cause and set informed goals to lower type 2 diabetes and develop a Mississauga Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Strategy.

Thanks to Mississauga partners for coming along for the ride and engaging with us.
