Trainees are integral to Diabetes Action Canada’s mission as the future leaders driving patient-oriented research in diabetes. Guided by top researchers in the field across Canada, our trainee members contribute significantly to our Network, leading innovative approaches to patient partnership, knowledge mobilization, and engagement with policymakers. Their efforts ensure that research outcomes are not only relevant and meaningful but also swiftly translated into action within communities and beyond.

“As part of our network, trainee members gain access to invaluable networking opportunities, skill development programs, and funding avenues offered through our partners such as MyRoad, Passerelle, CMDO and others.”

By fostering collaboration and resource-sharing within our diverse community of patient partners, researchers, clinicians, and health care practitioners, trainees are empowered to thrive and make impactful contributions to the advancement of diabetes patient-oriented research.
