It must be managed

24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year

and we expect to nearly double our patient demand in the next

5 years.

TYPE 1 DIABETES IS AN INCURABLE, COMPLEX DISEASE.

AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY

The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre (Best Centre) has launched the Building on the Best expansion campaign to raise $5 million to grow the current facility to support the next generation of type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients. Without the life-saving care delivered by The Best Centre healthcare team; type 1 diabetes patients would unnecessarily present with complications to overburdened health system partners.

For more than 300,000 Canadians living with T1D, each day brings multiple decisions and challenges to manage a life-threatening disease. The Best Centre sees about 2,000 patients and conducts more than 17,000 healthcare interactions per year to support patients living with T1D. The challenge continues.

The opportunity is NOW to invest in this transformation in community healthcare

which will save lives for generations to come.
