“Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement” William Pollard
Without doubt, we are all facing a global challenge like nothing we have faced before but there are also positive changes happening as we move though the journey of this COVID-19 pandemic… and we are doing it together.
In these challenging times, we are being both innovative and creative to ensure we are here for the people most important to our organisation…
Our members. Our donors. Our community.
We understand you may feel uncertain, even as COVID-19 restrictions ease, but please be reassured that the entire team at Diabetes SA are still forging ahead to provide that vital support.
Diabetes SA introduced Telehealth to enable us to continue to provide support and diabetes education to you over the phone or by video. We also took our most popular education sessions and developed them into an online, live webinar format which has been very popular.
These innovations have required a significant financial investment and considerable staff time but will make learning available to you wherever you are, now and in the future.
While we have done a lot to continue to support you, there is so much more that we still need to do. We know that the impact of COVID-19 is not over but more importantly that the diagnosis of diabetes will not stop so we have to be here for you now, and in the future.
Every week, more than 120 South Australian’s are told they have diabetes.
That is more than 20 every single day… even today as you read this.
We desperately need your help with a gift today to continue to provide support.
With the current economic situation, we have faced unprecedented disruptions and donation downturns, we have grave concerns for the future – for the future of the programs that support you – our members, our donors, our community.
We understand day to day diabetes management support is needed. We truly understand how important it is to ensure research projects proceed and are striving to keep diabetes prevention and detection programs moving forward.
We are all in this together so we hope you can give to our Appeal, so we can continue to support each other. Can you help us today?
Stay safe and reach out if you need us… we are always here for YOU. #SupportAlways
CEO, Diabetes SA
