Introducing LearnDiabetes: A game changer for pediatric diabetes

The multimedia platform helps children and youth diagnosed with diabetes. The disease can bring a lifetime of challenges, from having to monitor blood sugar levels around the clock to a never-ending fear of life-threatening complications.

Many families experience the exhaustion, isolation and burnout that comes with having a child with diabetes, but now there's a new resource with the launch of LearnDiabetes

The interactive, multimedia platform provides easy-to-understand education and training for families of children and youth living with type 1 diabetes to complement traditional diabetes teaching. The site provides a tool for families to better cope with diabetes and empowers them to self-manage the disease, no matter where they live in B.C.

Built in collaboration with the BC Children's Hospital Digital Lab and co-created with the Diabetes Transformation Project Patient and Family Advisory Board, this incredible platform is truly a game changer: a first-of-its-kind tool serving the pediatric diabetes community. 

The platform was made possible through innovation, collaboration and the generosity of donors.

Through the efforts of a community of dedicated supporters, the BC Children's Hospital Foundation raised more than $3.1 million to fund the project.
