Latest edition (June 2021 – October 2021)

Diabetes SA Detection Campaign

We are pleased to present the June 2021 edition of MyLife prepared just for our valuable Members. Here are just a few highlights…

In a first for Diabetes SA, we launched our first SA public awareness and type 2 diabetes detection campaign. You may have seen the ad on TV, or the billboards around the Adelaide Metro region, or you may be in regional SA and had the opportunity to participate in an event. This campaign is vital for the South Australian community, and you can read all about it on page 8.

One of the most important weeks on the diabetes calendar each year is National Diabetes Week which falls this year on July 11th to 17th. Our NDW seminar is on Saturday July 17th, with three esteemed speakers providing advice on detection and management. Read all about it on page 21.

In this edition we also welcome our new Ambassador Josh Ryan, and you can really get to a feel for his deeply personal passion for diabetes awareness by reading his story on page 10. It is inspiring and we look forward to working with Josh.

As we now find ourselves in the depths of winter, understanding how to best support our immune system is critical for overall wellness. From nutrients to immune-boosting behaviours, you will find all the help you need on page 14.

This edition has a lot to take in so grab a warming cuppa, stay warm and enjoy the read.
