What We Do
- Promote and support clinical trials in type-1 diabetes (T1D) that are co-developed and designed with people living with or affected by T1D.
- Ensure all Diabetes Action Canada T1D programs use an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) framework, leverage established relationships for meaningful patient partnership and foster culture of inclusivity and innovation that leads to better health outcomes for all.
- Accelerate the development of innovative therapies, devices, and solutions for improved clinical care in T1D through the Connect1d Canada platform.
- Establish and nurture a network of T1D researchers across Canada to promote collaboration in identifying research opportunities, developing registries, and ensuring that research is relevant and meaningful to those living with T1D. By working together and leveraging our collective expertise, we can accelerate progress towards improving the lives of everyone affected by T1D.
