Diabetes Hope Foundation

Who We Are

Diabetes Hope Foundation is dedicated to empower and support youth with diabetes as they transition from high school to post-secondary education and beyond. DHF provides resources, education, and opportunities to ensure youth thrive in every aspect of their lives. Recognizing how important a successful transition is for youth living with T1D, we have worked with diabetes health care practitioners across Canada to develop programs that encourage continued and successful diabetes management during a time of change and uncertainty.

While technological advancements have made diabetes management much easier, the mental toll of living with a chronic illness persists. In response, Diabetes Hope Foundation offers free resources and programs aimed at supporting the mental health of Canadian youth with T1D during their transition.
