Transition in the Kitchen
Diabetes Hope Foundation is excited to launch our new Transition in the Kitchen Recipe Guide and Webinar series to help youth-in-transition and their families learn how to manage their diabetes through healthy cooking and nutrition.
Our new initiative will kick off with our recipe guide launch, featuring 45 recipes from our Scholarship alumni and nutritional tips and reviews from a registered dietician. DHF will also host a series of fun and interactive online cooking classes packed with nutrition-based information and delicious diabetes-friendly recipes. The series will include Thanksgiving and Holiday demonstrations featuring guest alumni chefs and nutritionists covering a range of transition topics.
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!
