Our Programs

Overview

SFBLF Diabetes Program priorities are disease prevention and disease self-management through education, clinical innovation and provision of sustaining support with an emphasis on youth. A key aspect is a focus on the ‘transition’ challenges faced by youth living with diabetes as they migrate from the paediatric to adult healthcare system.

SFBLF ‘Legacy’ Programs honour Banting’s life and talents (e.g., artist, carver, war hero, medical scientist) through public access to informative exhibits assembled from the Banting Legacy Collection and augmented with loans and gifts from organizations, families and partners.
