Description

This booklet is a collection of quotes from Indigenous people about diabetes and is part of the diabetes campaign Don't ignore diabetes. It aims to change the current negative talk surrounding diabetes, to give hope to people suffering from the chronic disease and move the focus on diabetes to a belief that the disease can be prevented or delayed. The booklet shares comments of local Aboriginal community members living with diabetes, an, members who have a family history of diabetes.

It also highlights how health professionals can help people to prevent and manage diabetes, and provides a list of phone contact details for health services in the Perth metropolitan region.
