Kellion Victory Award
Australians who have lived with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes for 50 years or more are eligible for a Kellion Victory Award.
Each year during National Diabetes Week in July, Diabetes WA hosts a presentation event that recognises Western Australians who have lived full lives with the condition.
Carers of Kellion recipients are also eligible to receive a recognition award.
To learn more about the Kellion Victory Award and the Kellion Medal please visit Diabetes Australia.
To speak to someone about Kellions please contact us on (08) 9436 6204 or email our community relations team.
Diabetes WA encourages doctors, healthcare professionals and individuals to nominate likely recipients. Substantiating information is not always easy to obtain and proposers are asked to assist by providing copies of records and/or dates of diagnosis or initial hospital admission where possible.
All applications are evaluated by Diabetes Australia’s Kellions Victory Medal Committee.
