Peer Connect Series

Diabetes Canada invites you to join the Peer Connect Series presented in partnership with the Multiple District C Lions Cavalcade for Diabetes Awareness.

Register for the Type 1 or Type 2 Peer Connect Series to enjoy four free virtual evenings of peer support and education. Each series will feature topics and presentations aimed towards the uniqueness of the type 1 or type 2 diabetes community.    

Each session will be themed around a specific topic and provide you an opportunity to hear from knowledgeable speakers, connect you with a panel of experts, and provide you an opportunity to discuss with peers in breakout discussions.

If you are an individual affected by type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or a family member, friend, or caregiver this series is for you. Just grab your laptop, tablet or even your phone, and take part in this amazing networking and learning opportunity.

All sessions are from 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. (Mountain Time) via Zoom.
