MAKING YOUR VOICE COUNT – CADTH SUBMISSIONS

At T2DXX, our goal is to share the voice of the T2 person, the authentic lived experience.

They help shape the landscape of our healthcare system to benefit patients.    Your input has and will continue to influence health care decision-makers to make informed decisions about new products that enter the market.  Over the past two years, we've made two large submissions to this agency with your help. We'll continue to make submissions focusing on your experiences. Currently, there are only two patient groups in Canada that make submissions to this agency, Diabetes Canada, and us, the Type 2 Diabetes Experience Exchange.

YOUR STORY MATTERS

Stories are where we find meaning. From the days of the caveman to the fairy tales told to children, stories are our way of making sense of the world around us.

Every patient has a story. The very act of telling our story makes us feel good. When the story comes from an honest place and is well told, it has the power to change lives.
