Meet our delegates!

 

Event Date: Week of November 2, 2020

Location:  Virtual Event

During the week of November 2nd, delegates joined JDRF for its bi-annual Kids for a Cure Lobby Day. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event was held virtually, but that didn’t stop kids across Canada from raising awareness about the daily challenges of type 1 diabetes (T1D) with Members of Parliament and Senators.

Throughout the week, our youth ambassadors shared their personal stories of what it is like to live with T1D, and the importance of improving access to new drugs and devices in order to better aid those who live with the disease.

T1D is relentless. It never lets up - even amid a pandemic - and neither will we. Your stories help Canada’s decision-makers to understand the daily challenges you face living with diabetes, to bring home the importance of accelerating progress towards a cure. Stay tuned for more highlights on the event!
