“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Diabetes Canada. 2021 marked an important year as we recognized the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. In 2022, we will have many volunteer opportunities to continue to support those living with or affected by diabetes and the healthcare professionals who care for them.
Despite the discovery of insulin 100 years ago, diabetes continues to be successful at taking over the country. With the help of volunteers, Diabetes Canada has an exciting year ahead with educational programs, workshops, conferences, fundraising events, programs for kids and families, and continued advocacy.
