Whether you are healthy or have a medical condition, there are opportunities to participate in a research study. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires or screening tests, to clinical trials of a new drug or device.
This study is a 12-month study. There are two different groups in the study. Both groups will enter the study after the graduation from 8-hour diabetes education course taught at VGH, St. Paul's, or Richmond Hospital.
Patient failure to take medications as prescribed (medication non-adherence) is now identified as an important cause of kidney transplant failure. The availability of new drugs that are taken once daily may improve patient adherence compared to older drugs that had to be taken twice per day.

Parkinson's disease results from the loss of dopamine producing brain cells; however, the mechanism that start and continue this loss are still largerly unknkown. Recent research has suggested a protein called tau may contribute to the development and progression of Parksinon's disease.
