On Thursday, November 14, 2019, at the annual event entitled “Honouring Our Traditional Foods,” which took place at the Mohawk Community Centre, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, the Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle (IDHC) became the first diabetes organization to achieve certification status for its training programs by the Indigenous Certification Board of Canada (ICBOC). The very first certificate, acknowledging his many years of work in the field, was presented to Elder Robert Fenton at the event.

“I accept this award on behalf of my Grandmother. I would not be standing here but because of her guidance, support, encouragement and most importantly her love. Even though she moved to the Spirit World many years ago, she continues to guide, support, encourage and most importantly share her love with me.
She is the reason that I do what I do for diabetes and I will continue to do this work until I meet her again in the Spirit World and hear her say “Good work, my Grandson”.”
