World Diabetes Day—14 November 2017—marks 10 YEARS of the Alberta Diabetes Institute opening its doors at the University of Alberta.
Portraits of Diabetes is a celebration of this milestone. A portraits series offering a glimpse into what it’s like to live with diabetes—the highs and the lows.
One million people in Alberta have diabetes or prediabetes,with 1 in 10 deaths in Canada attributed to this disease.
There is no cure right now. But progress is being made through diabetes research happening right here at the Alberta Diabetes Institute.
Portraits of Diabetes is a reminder of the importance of continued diabetes research and understanding the impact diabetes has on the lives of a million of Albertans.
