Diabetes prevention pack plans launch for January

Flemingdon Park Community Health Centre has now made living with diabetes simpler with a handy kit available to those most troubled come January, including those suffering in Scarborough.

The prototype kit, that comes with a booklet, DVD, measuring spoons, pedometer, measuring tape and stress ball, was displayed on Tuesday morning as part of the South Asian Diabetes Prevention Program (SADPP) to prevent or protect South Asians in the community from diabetes.

Whales and Maori culture on display

Visitors can get up close to these colossal marine mammals with the help of interactive audiovisual exhibits such as exploring a “whale lab;” learning about whale riders, marine biologists and whaling families; and walking right up to a full-scale sperm whale fossil. Kids can also climb into a life-sized model of a blue whale heart.
