What’s on

We always have a variety of information sessions that are being conducted on a regular basis for people living with diabetes or supporters of them. These regular sessions include Connect With Diabetes, DESMOND and a range of our ‘Smart’ programs (MedSmart, MeterSmart, FootSmart, ShopSmart, Classroom ShopSmart and CarbSmart).


If an event appears crossed out, it is booked out already. In that case, please book in an alternative event that suits you.
