North West LHIN Fighting Diabetes

The number of people living with diabetes in Northwestern Ontario is among the highest in the province.

To combat that, the Northwest Local Health Integration Network continues to provide more coordinated diabetes care.

Susan Pilatzke is the Senior Director of Health System Transformation, and says they are looking at how they can improve patient care.

In 2012, the LHIN's took over the role for diabetes services from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
