Choose Health - the Self-Management Program for Ontario Health - Toronto region

About Us

South Riverdale Community Health Centre’s Choose Health regional service is an outcome of the Ontario Diabetes Strategy and is funded by Ontario Health – Toronto region.

To enhance patient self-management and provider health literacy, partnering with primary care as well as community based health and social service providers, we offer evidence-based programs for community members and professional development training for health care providers.
