About Us

Diabetes Tasmania has been working with the Tasmanian community since 1955, to prevent and reduce the impact of diabetes.

Diabetes has become one of the most significant health issues facing our community. Seven more Tasmanians develop the disease every day and the impact of the disease on our community is overwhelming.

Our organisation is working to assist Tasmanians living with diabetes. We do this by providing high quality diabetes education throughout Tasmania and work in partnership with state and federal governments and other organisations.

We use best practice clinical methods and professional clinicians to deliver our health services. Our Board of Governance and our Management Team are all skilled and experienced professionals and provide excellence in their fields of expertise. Our endeavours are ably supported by our professional and skilled staff, augmented by our strong team of volunteers.
