Diabetes Queensland Ambassadors Program

Individual stories bring statistics and health education to life.


We are committed to personalising diabetes so that the public and decisionmakers keep all types of diabetes in the forefront of community interest and policy development.The more people who know about diabetes and its effects, the more community support we can garner.


The Diabetes Queensland Ambassadors Program has marshalled people who are willing to tell their stories in the media, at speaking opportunities, and support Diabetes Queensland in our efforts to care for Queenslanders with all types of diabetes.
