Diabetes Action Canada

Diabetes Action Canada Training and Mentoring Program

The Diabetes Action Canada (DAC) Training and Mentorship Program aims to strengthen Canada’s patient-oriented research capacity in diabetes and its complications. The goal of our group is to prepare the next generation of Canadian diabetes researchers for patient-oriented research methods that align with the four pillars of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

The Training and Mentoring Program, which is led by Dr. Mathieu Bélanger and Dr. André Carpentier, prepares and organizes training and mentoring opportunities for graduate students (Master’s and PhD), postdoctoral fellows, health professionals in the patient-oriented diabetes research sector. Training sessions are also offered in both official languages to patients, healthcare providers, researchers, policy makers and administrators. These activities are coordinated with other Diabetes Action Canada Network working groups, such as the Patient Engagement Group and the Aboriginal Peoples Health Group, and in collaboration with partners such as CIHR, Diabetes Canada and the Cardiometabolic, Diabetes and Obesity Research Network of Québec (CMDO).
