A Welcome Message from JDRF's New President & CEO

Dave Prowten

Good day everyone, my name is Dave Prowten and this is my first official post as the new President and CEO of JDRF Canada. It’s been two weeks since I have had the pleasure of walking through the doors to take on this amazing role at JDRF, and I would now like to officially introduce myself to the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community across Canada.

I am proud and honoured to be able to contribute to this great cause as we pursue our mission to cure, better treat and prevent T1D. I know that a big component of our success is your incredible support, whether as a dedicated fundraiser, volunteer, or advocate across the country. Thank you for all that you do to help JDRF continue our mission to find a cure for T1D.

I am passionate about our commitment to improving the lives of all those living with T1D and delivering crucial funds to advance T1D research and technology.  I know we will continue with this momentum, and continue to build on our successes. Together, we will take JDRF to new heights.

Thank you again for your continued commitment to JDRF and our mission. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can at JDRF events in the near future.

Kind regards,

Dave Prowten
President and CEO
JDRF Canada
