The Canadian Club of Halton Peel (in its 29th season) presents guest dinner speaker Dr. Hertzel Gerstein, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Endocrinologist, Professor of Medicine, & Population Health Institute Chair in Diabetes Research, McMaster University. In Ontario, one out of nine people have diabetes. Of that number, 10% have Type 1 diabetes (autoimmune damage to the pancreas) and 90% have Type 2 diabetes (all other causes including lifestyle). Having started his medical career in 1981, Dr. Gerstein began researching diabetes in the early 1990’s. His research currently spans over 50 countries and he is recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the field. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about glucose and how the body uses it, the role of the pancreas and its challenges, and whether diabetes can be prevented, delayed, cured or at least put into remission. 3-course dinner with speaker and Q&A opportunity. Registration required.
