National Diabetes Week 2019

  • 15 July 2019

    It is National Diabetes Week from Sunday 14 July to Saturday 20 JulyThe 2019 theme 'It’s about time' aims to raise awareness of all types of diabetes and how it affects those that are living with it. Too many Australians are being diagnosed with diabetes too late. This is true for both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The delay in diagnosis is putting many people at risk of major life-threatening health problems. Early diagnosis, treatment, ongoing support and management can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications.

    The week consists of high-level conferences as well as backyard fundraising events, and everyone is encouraged to get on board and help make a difference.
