About Us

Supporting Innovation in Diabetes Care

BC Diabetes Foundation (BCDF), originally named the BC Endocrineresearch Foundation, was established in 1995 after a generous gift by Morris Wosk, a client of Dr. Elliott’s.  Morris continued to support the BCDF until his passing in 2002. With those funds and gifts of many supporters since, both clients of the physician board members and and industry partners, over the past 25 years the BCDF has supported diverse research and granting programs involving all areas of endocrinology, but primarily in diabetes and in the last few years, solely in diabetes (hence its name change).

Current areas of support include the following:

CGM support (we held a fundraiser at Science World 2019-Apr brought in more than $100k which has since been exhausted)

Subsidies to reduce BC Pharmacare deductible

Clinical trials of Hybrid closed loop pumps
