Other Program Updates

In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of our signature Scholarship Program in 2023, Diabetes Hope Foundation has set up an Alumni Hope Scholarship Fund in recognition of all our Alumni who have PAID-IT-FORWARD over the years to help us continue to bring vital resources and programs to the diabetes community. The scholarship award(s) honours our esteemed alumni who have continually given back since they received their award and believe in providing a continuum of support for future transitioning youth as they embark on their post-secondary journey and beyond.


DHF Recipe Guide

Recognizing the need for providing a tool for students to take charge of their nutritional needs and requirements, Diabetes Hope Foundation, along with their alumni spearheaded a supplementary Recipe Guide to accompany our “Guide for Successful Transition to College and University” to provide youth in transition with easy, healthy recipes and tips for managing their diet and diabetes while living away from home and on campus. The guide features 45 recipes from our Scholarship alumni and nutritional tips and reviews from a registered dietician.

Exciting News!

We are thrilled to announce that our Founder and Chair, Barbara Pasternak, has been recognized by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon, Governor General of Canada, and awarded a Meritorious Service Decoration (Civil Division) for her tireless work supporting youth living with diabetes. This honour, one of the highest in the country, is a testament to Barbara’s outstanding achievements and programs in support of youth and young adults and their families living with diabetes across the nation.

We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the alumni, partners, members of the DHF Board of Directors and Scholarship Advisory Committee who graciously wrote letters and provided testimonials to the Governor General’s Office in support of Barbara receiving this incredible and well-deserved accolade.

Congratulations from all of the DHF community, Barbara!
