by IUOE 942 on August 3, 2023

Hello IUOE,


I am writing to you today to share information about the free 12-month lifestyle intervention program called CHANGE at the University of Prince Edward Island. CHANGE is specifically designed for individuals who are at risk for or have metabolic syndrome and includes personalized nutritional and physical activity guidance. Participants will have access to a dietitian and a kinesiologist, who will provide education and support throughout the program.

We are reaching out to unions across Prince Edward Island to help spread the word about this amazing opportunity. We believe that the members of your union who have metabolic syndrome could benefit greatly from this program, and we would appreciate your support in sharing this information with them.

The study is being conducted in collaboration with Metabolic Syndrome Canada, the organization that created the program ( It is a great opportunity for individuals who are struggling with prediabetes/diabetes, high blood pressure, abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol. The program is completely free, and participants will receive regular sessions with the dietitian and the kinesiologist.

We understand the importance of having healthy and active employees, and this program could be a great resource for your members. By sharing the attached information with them, you will be providing them with an opportunity to take control of their health and improve their overall well-being.

If you are interested in learning more about the program or have any questions, please contact the study team at 902-620-5156 or email We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support in spreading the word about this great opportunity.
