Kellion Awards

In 1984, Diabetes Queensland responded to a proposal by Dr Alan Stocks to recognise and commemorate Australians who have lived with diabetes for 50, 60 and 70 years or more. The Kellion awards were named after the late Mr Claude Kellion.

 

Mr Kellion made an outstanding contribution towards diabetes in Australia following the untimely death of his son John in September 1972. At just 38 years of age, John died as a result of complications of diabetes. His father was dismayed by the lack of research into the condition and decided to set up the Kellion Diabetes Foundation. For many years, this foundation was the only private source of funding for diabetes research in Australia.

 

A more recent addition to the Kellion Victory Medal Scheme is the Kellion Carer's Award, which recognises years of love, dedication and support by a carer. Having diabetes affects and involves the whole family, and a carer plays a major role in assisting those with diabetes to live a more satisfying life.
