If you are a licensed pharmacist in Canada with an interest in diabetes, we recommend that you join our Diabetes Pharmacists Network.
The BBDC membership is a network of individuals involved in diabetes research, education and care from various departments at the University of Toronto and its affiliated hospitals and sites. Membership is free and open to individuals involved in full or part-time diabetes research, education, or patient care (i.e. scientists, physicians, nurses, dietitians, etc.) and whose primary university appointment or employment (i.e. more than 50% of total salary), is with the University of Toronto or one of its affiliated hospitals and sites listed below. Postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, undergraduate students, research associates and technicians are not eligible for membership; however, they are welcome to join our e-mail list. The BBDC occasionally makes membership available to non-U of T affiliated faculty and health professionals who are invited by the BBDC to play a major role in the Centre’s activities (e.g. those asked to serve on BBDC committees).
