Are you interested in supporting type 1 diabetes research in Canada? The Connect1d Canada Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) is looking for people from the diabetes community to be a part of the committee that supports our Connect1d Canada program.

Connect1d Canada is a person-driven digital platform that enables those with type 1 diabetes (T1D) to easily learn about and access innovative treatments from across Canada while contributing to clinical research in the areas that matter most to them. Connect1d Canada also allows researchers to recruit and engage with patients with greater ease, thereby accelerating research and creating a more diverse and complete picture of Canadians living with type 1 diabetes. Working collaboratively with researchers and those living with the condition being studied, this platform was designed to meet the needs of both groups and support better overall health outcomes.

The CCAC will support decisions related to how Connect1d Canada is managed, how participants and staff are protected, and how accountability is assured. As Connect1d Canada grows, the CCAC will ensure the project meets the needs of the T1D community. This includes helping to develop a strategic roadmap, supporting patient engagement activities, and advising on areas such as research study recruitment and sustainability planning.

This is an excellent opportunity to have your voice at the table and we encourage all those who are interested to apply!

You can find out more about the CCAC and the role that members will play on our website.

Interested in getting involved? Applicants should contact Tracy McQuire to express interest.
