Sun Life Helps Combat Diabetes

To help combat the diabetes epidemic in Canada, Sun Life Financial has made a $5 million commitment to the University Health Network (UHN) to support transformational research focused on finding a cure, as well as promoting and providing prevention and care programs. Diabetes is a disease that is growing in Canada with almost 40 per cent of Canadians having someone in their lives impacted by the disease, says the 2012 Sun Life ‘Canadian Health Index.’ It is projected that one in three Canadians will be living with diabetes or pre-diabetes in less than a decade. “We’re pleased to commit our support for diabetes, the first time in our company’s almost 150-year history that we have focused on a single health-related cause to this extent,” says Mary De Paoli, executive vice-president, public and corporate affairs and chief marketing officer at Sun Life Financial.
