For the months of February and March 2013 we are going to donate $10.00 from every invoice to the Canadian Diebetes Association.

It is the Canadian Diabetes Association’s mission to lead the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while working to find a cure. As such, the CDA is proud to be a leading supporter of diabetes research in Canada. Since 1975 and the establishment of the Charles H. Best Research Fund—named for insulin co-discoverer and Association co-founder Dr. Charles H. Best—the Association has awarded more than $110 million in research grants to scientists who have dedicated themselves to the fight against diabetes.

The report Diabetes: Canada at the Tipping Point – Charting a New Path presents a sobering view of diabetes in Alberta. In 2010, an estimated 217,000 Albertans had diabetes, representing 5.8 per cent of the provincial population. This number is expected to rise to 363,000, or 8.6 per cent, by 2020.

Like prevalence, the cost of diabetes also is increasing. The economic burden of diabetes in Alberta was an estimated $1.1 billion in 2010 and is expected to rise to an estimated $1.6 billion by 2020.

In 2012-2013, the Canadian Diabetes Association is investing $7.1 million in our research program. This includes funding more than $670,000 in research grants and awards in Alberta. Thank you for participating in this important campaign to help us continue funding this critical research in diabetes in Alberta .

Each year, CDA funds Canada’s most renowned scientists and clinicians in their quest for new and innovative developments in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes. Although the research is diverse in its scope, covering a broad range of specialties, the key aspects of every study and researcher remain the same – to improve the quality of life of people living with diabetes and to find a cure.
