WHAT WE DO
The specific needs of older adults with diabetes are often not factored into research programs, yet this population often has to manage multiple health conditions with increasing complexities. Diabetes Action Canada’s Aging Community and Population Research team looks at the specific challenges facing older adults with diabetes with an eye towards better understanding their needs in order to find health care solutions that will work for them. Our team is supported by a dedicated group of Patient Partners who have specific experience as caregivers and people living with diabetes and who have expertise on the complexities of supporting diverse populations. Together, they are working on a program that will provide individualized solutions that help more people live longer, healthier lives with diabetes and avoid devastating complications.
