One on One type 1 diabetes parent seminar – Mackay

Join parents and carers of 9 -16 year-olds with type 1 diabetes at Diabetes Queensland's One on One parent seminar.


Meet other parents, share experiences and learn strategies to help support your child with diabetes through the teenage years. Children with type 1 diabetes are invited to attend the morning to enjoy a supervised activity by local Mackay Sensory Circus facilitator Tammy Stone.


"It's a great opportunity for parents and their child to meet other parents and children who are dealing with similar issues." 


Guest presenters will include a Psychologist and a young adult Tami Willey (pending her commitments with the Queensland Basketball League finals)  who is a professional basketball player who is juggling a career, a family and type 1 diabetes.


A credentialed diabetes educator from the local area and staff from Diabetes Queensland will also be on the panel. 


Registrations are essential. Sessions are free to attend but places are limited. To register and for more information call the Diabetes Queensland Helpline on 1300 136 588.
