Description

The concept and characters for this booklet were developed from work produced by people at the Sacred Heart School, Beagle Bay, WA in 2001 and 2002. Those involved included the upper primary school students, their teachers and Aboriginal support staff.

The booklet is brightly coloured with simple diagrams representing the passage of food through the body and the role of insulin. Insulin is depicted as a superhero figure with a key to unlock the passage of the sugar molecules to the cells.

An audiovisual titled What is type 2 diabetes? the video is also available in this series.
