Liam Byrnes

Liam has lived with type 1 diabetes for more than 20 years and has first-hand experience of the daily challenges this brings.  With a background in economics and law and substantial commercial and strategy experience, he has skills that translate directly to Diabetes Queensland.


Liam is particularly interested in supporting people living with diabetes, especially children living with type 1 and their parents and across regional Queensland.  He believes a key role of diabetes Queensland is to support all people to manage their diabetes.  Diabetes should be important, but not defining, with Diabetes Queensland a key partner in the diabetes management journey.
