SANSAR is hosting its 3rd annual fundraising gala on Friday, June 9th, 2017 in efforts to reach its goal, to raise $80,000 for its Healthy Futures initiatives. This basket of programs aims to prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes across the age and disease spectrum, helping both children and adults, and those with and without cardiovascular disease. These initiatives include:

Kids at heART

SANSAR runs live workshops with students in the Peel Region, to teach them about the importance of prevention and about risk reduction strategies from a young age. In its attempt to develop impactful programs, SANSAR has recognized the importance of targeting the next generation with this initiative. We are educating students in Peel Region middle schools on heart disease and diabetes prevention. The goal of this program is to empower our youth to live healthy and reduce their risk for developing these serious diseases later in life.

Mera Dil Risk Management Program

Free group educational classes about healthy eating, exercise, stress reduction,medication, and much more. The goal of the classes is to help individuals and families make lifestyle changes to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

South Asian Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Clinic 

Patients receive comprehensive cardiovascular screening to help determine their risk for heart disease and diabetes. South Asian physicians at the Clinic work with the patients to promote earlier risk factor modification, and lifestyle interventions.

About This Charity

South Asians represent the largest visible minority in Canada. Compared to other populations, South Asians face a higher burden of coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension and diabetes. In addition, heart disease and diabetes occur at younger ages in South Asians, with certain risk factors beginning in childhood. SANSAR (South Asian Network Supporting Awareness and Research) serves communities in Ontario and across Canada by promoting cardiovascular health. We do this through our various initiatives involving advanced screening, public education, physician education, research and much more.
