Diabetic Foot Canada (with the support of Wounds Canada) has developed a program called Diabetes, Healthy Feet and You, an innovative program, for persons with diabetes. Previously known as PEP Talk, this program offers patients and caregivers information and tools towards healthier feet.

This program offers:

1. Access to workshops in communities in each province. Each workshop is led by a Peer Leader — a person with diabetes — partnered with a leading Healthcare Professional. These volunteer teams are specially trained to help you learn to care for your feet. Diabetes Healthy Feet and You program lets you learn how to care for your feet from someone like you — a person who lives with diabetes. 

2. Resources to help you manage the day-to-day care of your feet.

3. Electronic reminders – Foot care e tips
