Diabetes Action Canada is pleased to now be a member of Research Canada.

Research Canada is a national, broad-based alliance dedicated to advancing health research through collaborative advocacy. Their mission, which aligns well with DAC’s is, “to improve the health and prosperity of all Canadians by championing Canada‚Äôs global leadership in health research and innovation.”

Already, DAC has participated in one of Research Canada’s events, a Parliamentary Health Research Caucus on ‘Exploring the Future of Diabetes Treatment, Management and Prevention.’ There, DAC researchers Drs. David Campbell, Diana Sherifali and Lorraine Lipscombe spoke about advances in diabetes care. Patient Partner Tom Weisz was also a panelist at this event, sharing his own experience of living with type 2 diabetes and the importance of research to him.

The team at Diabetes Action Canada looks forward to continuing to build on this important collaboration.
