Mississauga Welcomes New Research Hub Aimed at Reducing Diabetes in Community

“Yesterday, Novo Nordisk, a global healthcare company with Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, and the University of Toronto (U of T), announced a new research hub at U of T’s Mississauga campus that will bring leading public health experts together to help reduce chronic illnesses across the globe.

“We are thrilled that Novo Nordisk and U of T chose Mississauga as the home for their new research network that will support our goal of creating a healthier City and world,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “In Peel Region, one in 10 residents live with diabetes, which is 40 per cent higher than the rest of Ontario. We understand there is a direct correlation between healthy citizens and the economic productivity of society. Sadly, COVID-19 has impacted vulnerable people more severely – such as those who suffer from chronic illnesses – which is why we support research in our community to help improve the health of our residents and people across the globe.””
