FOR CANADIAN YOUTH LIVING WITH T1D

Diabetes Hope Foundation specializes in developing unique and innovative resources to help youth with diabetes and their families navigate the transition to post-secondary school. In 2014, DHF recognized the need for accessible and reliable information about college and university resources and responded with our “Guide for Successful Transition to College & University’. Since then, DHF has worked with our youth leaders and clinic partners to continue developing essential transition webinars and downloadable resources, all focused on ensuring students and their supporters are empowered with the information they need to help make their transitions just a little bit easier.

THE ULTIMATE TRANSITION TOOL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Our Transition Guide was developed to support students with T1D to make informed decisions about their college/university choices and to help them access essential resources while they are at college/university. Recommended by the Ministry of Health’s Ontario Pediatric Diabetes Network, our “Guide for the Successful Transition to College & University” provides students with information about campus resources, what their rights and benefits are and helpful alumni insights. The online guide (launched in 2022) features a searchable database that enables students to look up transition information by city, college and diabetes supports.

With a total of 190+ accredited Canadian colleges and universities repsresented and updated annually in this comprehensive guide, it is an essential tool for all transitioning students and their families.
