Pharmacies Offering Diabetes Education, Monitoring, and Care

Canada's largest food retailer and a leading provider of drugstore merchandise and services has partnered with the Canadian Diabetes Association to help make diabetes education and treatment more accessible. The collaboration between the Loblaw Companies Limited and Canadian Diabetes Association is intended to help the 9 million Canadians with diabetes manage their disease and to identify the estimated 1 million Canadians who are unaware that they are living with type 2 diabetes.

In pharmacies located in Loblaw grocery stores across Canada, pharmacists have begun engaging customers who have been diagnosed with or who may have risk factors for diabetes through complimentary risk assessments, private patient counseling, lifestyle recommendations, and medication protocol advice. Loblaw and the Canadian Diabetes Association also began offering information sessions in select communities.
