Diabetes Tasmania Turns 60


1955 - 2015 60th Anniversary of Diabetes Tasmania  


In August we celebrated our 60th Anniversary - what a significant milestone - we held a cocktail evening at the Hobart Town Hall on the 24th to celebrate and give thanks to all of our past and present Board members, staff, volunteers, supporters and donors who have all supported and shaped the organisation into what it is today. We couldn't do what we do without you.


The world of diabetes has changed considerably over the last 60 years and although our organisation has evolved in so many ways and the breadth and scope of what we do has grown, our core focus of supporting Tasmanians affected by all types of diabetes, and those at risk, remains. Diabetes is set to become the leading burden of disease within the next five years, we still have much to do.


Here's to the next 60 years of Diabetes Tasmania.
