Late last year, we were approached by The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre to assist the many newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic pediatric patients that walk through their door each year.

Companies Who Care were able to sponsor the cost of 100 New Patient Resource Packages that include an at-school emergency kit, ensuring that life-threatening blood sugar lows can be properly managed, as well as a new patient information manual that details the information and education needed to enable excellent self-management from the Best Centre’s staff of nurses, dietitians and social workers.

Type 1 diabetes in NOT preventable and there in NO cure. We are proud that we can support these children and their families as they navigate this new world with the help and expertise of The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre, the “first of its kind” centre in Canada.
