A Message From the President - BC Diabetes Foundation

Thomas Elliott MBBS, FRCPC

Welcome to a new year. It’s hard to believe that a full year has passed since we started this publication. I feel great pride seeing the Foundation growing and expanding its activities.

Along with our Quarterly Newsletter we are now distributing the new video by Dr. Jerilynn Prior called “The Puzzle of Perimenopause”. The Foundation is also supporting research projects in osteoporosis, diabetes and thyroid disease and providing educational materials for the benefit of medical students at Vancouver and St. Paul’s Hospitals specializing in endocrinology. We also awarded our first fellowship for post-graduate medical research in women’s health.

It is through the efforts of our Advisory Council and the Board of Directors along with our volunteers that we have accomplished so much and my thanks go out to them. Thanks as well to Dr. Eric Norman who continues as the editor of the newsletter and secretary of the Foundation. And finally a special thanks to our many generous donors and their ongoing support.
