Diabète Quebec has pioneered in educating the public about diabetes, with the teaching service Diabétaide established in 1979. This organization provides relevant information on diet and healthcare tips for diabetics, family members and medical professionals. They provide information through a telephone helpline and a magazine as well. Diabète Quebec also aims to promote research, provide support and put forth the right of people with diabetes with governments, health services and businesses.
During 2015, GSK funded Diabète Quebec with $5,000 in project funding.
GSK’s contributions to Diabète Quebec represent less than 1% of the organization’s total revenue for 2015.
