Diabetes Open Hours

If you are living with diabetes, you're not alone - it affects millions of Canadians. But it's a complex condition that impacts everyone a bit differently.

Do you have questions about managing your diabetes? Diabetes Canada is proud to offer a new initiative specifically for inquiring minds! Diabetes Open Hours is a live, registration-based, virtual series with an ‘ask anything’ feel for people with diabetes to connect with an ‘expert’ guest in a Q&A style session, asking diabetes related questions based on a particular theme or topic. Each session is one hour in length and there is a new expert and a new topic bi-monthly.
