About Beyond Type 2 Canada
Founded in 2015, Beyond Type 1 is leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with chronic disease. By educating the global community and providing resources and support for those impacted by all types of diabetes, Beyond Type 1 is bridging the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to live well today and funding a better tomorrow.
Launched in 2019, Beyond Type 2 is a program of the nonprofit organization Beyond Type 1. Beyond Type 2 is a place for everyone impacted by type 2 diabetes to share their stories, get connected to the community and find resources on topics from daily management to mental health.
The creation of the Canadian subdomain in 2023 was in response to an already established and growing Canadian audience with demands for local content and resources related to type 2 diabetes. Through the support of Lilly Canada as founding partner, Canadians can engage on the organization’s localized digital platforms in French and English to share their stories, get connected to the community and find critical resources on topics from daily management and the importance of early blood sugar management to weight management in type 2 diabetes to mental health.
