2018 DHF Alumni Symposium

Our Lives, Our World, Our Future

Next spring, our Alumni will host their first DHF Alumni Symposium to celebrate Diabetes Hope Foundation’s 20th anniversary. This exciting new event will kick off a full day of events curated by our Alumni Committee to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Diabetes Hope Foundation’s Scholarship Program. The event will be held at the University of Toronto at the Hart House from 9 am to 3 pm.

The theme of our symposium is “Our Lives, Our World, Our Future.” The objective of the symposium is to prepare post-secondary students with diabetes for life after university and transition into young adulthood.

Our symposium will feature 8 speaking panels organized by profession, with each panel running for about 45 minutes with 20 minutes for Q&As. Each panel will feature a cross generation of 3 alumni speakers to share their transition experiences.

We are extending an invitation to all alumni who are interested in sharing their experience with new scholarship recipients and past alumni who are preparing for their transition into life after college/university.
