It's been 100 years since the discovery of insulin—the most notable Canadian medical breakthrough of the 20th century. However, insulin is not enough. It’s the starting line, not the finish line for diabetes.
Every kilometre makes a difference. Even after 100 years of insulin, one in three Canadians is living with or at risk of diabetes, and some will experience serious, and even life-threatening complications in their lifetime. The need for prevention, care, and a cure has never been greater.
Join Lace Up to End Diabetes, presented by GMS, or donate to help bring us one step closer to finding a cure, so we don’t have to wait another 100 years to end diabetes.
