It is with great sadness that we farewell a true giant of Australia’s diabetes community.

Emeritus Professor Trisha Dunning AM devoted her life to supporting people with diabetes – first as a nurse and diabetes clinician and then as an educator and researcher. Diabetes Australia, Diabetes Victoria, the Australian Diabetes Educators Association and the International Diabetes Federation all benefited from her knowledge, compassion and leadership, as did Deakin University and Barwon Health.

Farewell Trisha, your commitment to improving the lives of people with diabetes will not be forgotten.

Craig’s story: How surgery saved his feet

This #FootHealthWeek we’re highlighting the story of Craig Chapman, a farmer and IT company CEO, who lives just outside of Canberra.

Craig was facing a major limb amputation when he met leading endovascular surgeon Dr Victor Bourke.

Every year, thousands of Australians face the prospect of diabetes-related amputations. Less invasive surgical procedures may provide alternative options that can save limbs.

In this video, Craig explains how revascularization surgery helped his feet heal.
