Diabetes Education Program

Meet your Local Diabetes Education Program Team!

Your local Diabetes Education Program (DEP) team is a duo: Heather Richardson, Registered Nurse, and Robin Greer, Registered Dietician. We are located at Chapleau and District Family Health Team office, beside the hospital.

Robin Greer and Heather Richardson

We are both Certified Diabetes Educators (C.D.E), meaning we are health care professionals with a strong knowledge base in the care and management of diabetes, based on the Diabetes Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines. Every five years we write an exam or create a career portfolio to prove our knowledge, skill, and ability to practice effectively and safely, and to maintain competency of a C.D.E within the profession of diabetes education.

We offer a variety of different services within the realm of diabetes. We can do phone visits, OTN visits, or in person visits depending on your comfort level. We are also hoping to bring group learning sessions back soon, such as cooking classes. To book an appointment call 705-864-3070 or e-mail us at or
