Advocates needed for Manitoba Lobby Day 2020

Manitoba Lobby Day 2020

Help make insulin pumps accessible and affordable for all Manitobans

On March 11, 2020, advocates living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) will share with Members of the Legislative Assembly their experience living with T1D and the importance of extending insulin pump coverage to people of all ages. In Manitoba, to qualify under the current insulin pump program, you must be under the age of 18.

Manitoba should follow the lead of Alberta, Ontario, Nunavut, North West Territories, and Yukon – provinces and territories which already cover insulin pump costs for all residents. Insulin pumps should be provided for everyone living with T1D regardless of age.

Here is how you can help:
