Help us raise the profile of type 2 diabetes during National Diabetes Week

Two million Australians are at high risk of type 2 diabetes.

To coincide with National Diabetes Week, Diabetes Australia is launching a new prevention campaign urging all Australians to see if they are at risk of type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in up to 58 per cent of cases through early detection and lifestyle modification. The campaign will also feature the personal stories of people who have prevented and who are living with type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes Australia represents all people affected by all types of diabetes. The aim of the 2014 National Diabetes Week campaign is to raise awareness of the seriousness and prevalence of type 2 diabetes and encourage all Australians to check their risk.

National Diabetes Week runs from 13–19 July 2014. Visit the campaign website www.checkmyrisk.org.au for full details.

The National Diabetes Week campaign was launched on Wednesday 16 July in Melbourne at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium.
