About ALBERTA DIABETES FOUNDATION
Alberta Diabetes Foundation (formerly AFDR (Alberta Foundation for Diabetes Research) was organized by a group of volunteers, some of whom were parents of Diabetics or in other ways affected by Diabetes. The Alberta Foundation for Diabetes Research was incorporated under the Societies Act on Nov. 4, 1988.
Alberta Diabetes Foundation's purpose is to raise funds to support world-leading diabetes research projects. Besides funding diabetes research, Alberta Diabetes Foundation works with the researchers to provide our supporters with up-to-date information about what's happening on the research front. We also strive to create opportunities for interaction with other diabetics.
Alberta Diabetes Foundation hosts many promotional events and can organize lab tours of current projects.
