The Alberta Diabetes Foundation is devoted to raising money for diabetes research. Through our fundraising efforts, we directly support scientific research which has yielded extremely positive results. To date the Alberta Diabetes Foundation has raised over 11.8 million in support of cure-related diabetes research.
The Alberta Diabetes Foundation relies on dedicated volunteers and supporters, who donate, support and organize third party events on our behalf. You can be one of these people! Whether you’re an individual or part of a community group, school or company you can help get us closer to finding a cure.
The Alberta Diabetes Institute Clinical Research Unit, along with skilled researchers and coordinators, will provide a welcoming and proficient setting for participants to volunteer in ground breaking research studies.
