DESMOND - Chermside

Diabetes Education and Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed (DESMOND) is an education program designed to support people living with type 2 diabetes.


This free one day program will help you understand and manage the changes type 2 diabetes can bring to your life.  Meet and share experiences with others while working with our health professionals to develop your own personal health plan. 


A DESMOND program may help you:


  • lower your HbA1c
  • increase your understanding of diabetes
  • be more physically active
  • take steps to lose weight
  • take steps to quit smoking
  • improve your overall health


You must register to attend our DESMOND program, as places are limited.  Please feel free to bring along a support person with you on the day.  To register, or if you want to know more about this program, please call the NDSS HELPLINE on 1300 136 588 or email
