DiaBuddies Day - Brisbane

Diabetes Queensland invites you to join us at our upcoming DiaBuddies Day, a special event to bring children living with type 1 diabetes and their families together. 


DiaBuddies activity days have been designed to support families and carers. The day will include a range of fun social activities, as well as education and emotional support to increase confidence, and connections. 


The theme for the day is - Superheroes - and we'd love to see all the kids (and their parents/carers) dressed as their favourite hero. There will be prizes for the best dressed, and plenty of activities and fun for the whole family. 


"I haven't seen our children smile and laugh as much as they did today. For those three hours we certainly forgot about type 1 for a while."

Kirsty ~ mother of Molly
