World Diabetes Day – Saturday 14 November 2015

13 November 2015

Did you know? 280 Australians develop Diabetes every day. That is 1 person every 5 minutes.

At Medtronic we believe we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of how technology can improve people’s lives and we’re dedicated to transforming diabetes care by going Further, Together. This will require courage, commitment and collaboration for a better future so people with diabetes can enjoy greater freedom and better health. People with diabetes [#PWD] and their loved ones + industry partners + healthcare and consumer organisations+ healthcare professionals = #Further,Together. Check out the video to see what we mean.

In Australia, we maintain our support of a community campaign seeking reimbursement for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). In recent weeks the conversation has become louder with Diabetes Australia and the Danii Meads Barlow Foundation presenting to Government in Canberra. But momentum is important. Your voice is important. Better outcomes for people with diabetes are important. Learn more about efforts to improve access to technology here.

Happy World Diabetes Day!
