Keep an eye on your mailboxes — the first volume of “ARTA Wellness” is on its way!
Based on ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan usage data, one of the diseases that affects ARTA members the most is diabetes. The good news is that there are things you can do to take control of diabetes and prevent its problems. And, if you are worried about getting diabetes as you age, there are things you can do to lower your risk.
As a special initiative for 2018, ARTA has prepared a Wellness Guide on Diabetes. It will be arriving in your mailboxes in November — National Diabetes Month! This guide includes important information on topics including what diabetes is, mitigating your risk, and living with a diabetes diagnosis. We hope that you will spend time reading this guide and using it as a reference tool for years to come.
They will arrive as close to World Diabetes Day (November 14) as Canada Post allows. If you do not receive your copy by November 30th, please contact the ARTA office.
