Matthew Andrew

Diabetes Queensland Board member since September 2017. Previously on the Board from November 2004 to November 2014.


Matthew first became interested in diabetes through his wife's involvement with Diabetes Queensland and it became clear that his skills could support the organisation at the Board level.  A background in market research, management and public administration provides Matthew with a skill set that is directly relevant to many aspects of Diabetes  Queensland business, particularly marketing, government relations and program development for people with diabetes.


Matthew is particularly interested in type 2 diabetes, because of both the significant long-term health problem it represents for the Australian community and the impact it has on the lives of people who develop it. He believes that a key role of Diabetes Queensland is to improve community awareness of diabetes and to adequately support people with diabetes by providing appropriate, timely advice and support to assist with the management of their condition.
