Programs in partnership with Diabetes Action Canada

Detailed description of programs in partnership with DAC

The CMDO Network is a partner of the Diabetes Action Canada (DAC) (https://diabetesaction.ca/?lang=en), CIHR’s SRAP network on diabetes and its complications. Dr. Jean-Pierre Després (CRIUCPQ, ULaval) and Dr. Gary Lewis (University of Toronto) are the scientific co-leads of this network.

As part of this partnership, the CMDO provides some of DAC’s French-language research training and will participate in DAC’s training programs across Canada. As a result, the CMDO Winter Camp is now open to Canadian Francophone students outside Quebec and the CMDO is involved in the development of an English-language Patient-Oriented Research Training Camp, which is held every year at the professional conference satellite of Diabetes Canada (also a partner of DAC). The CMDO Network also contributes to new student support programs in collaboration between research centers across Canada (see the PDF file). CMDO’s young researchers will also benefit from a new intercenter scientific mentoring program that has been implemented in partnership with the DAC network.

Finally, our researcher, student, patient, professional and health decision-maker members will benefit from training programs, including patient-focused research. Special emphasis will be placed on gender equity issues and research with isolated and vulnerable populations.
