Our Association at a Glance

A Distinct Mission

The McMaster Diabetes Association  acknowledges that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. In 2019, we brought individuals passionate about the various lenses of diabetes together, to spread awareness of diabetes to the McMaster population! 

By working together we can end stigma and misinformation concerning misconceived biases. Our mandates also include helping those affected to live healthy lives, preventing the onset of diabetes, informing McMaster students about recent researches and therapeutic strategies in the management of diabetes, and raising funding for donation to organizations that help diabetic patients.
