Diabetes has become one of the most significant health issues facing our community. Seven more Tasmanians develop the disease every day and the impact of the disease on our community is overwhelming.
Our organisation is working to assist Tasmanians living with diabetes. We do this by providing high quality diabetes education throughout Tasmania and work in partnership with state and federal governments and other organisations.
We use best practice clinical methods and professional clinicians to deliver our health services. Our Board of Governance and our Management Team are all skilled and experienced professionals and provide excellence in their fields of expertise. Our endeavours are ably supported by our professional and skilled staff, augmented by our strong team of volunteers.

Being diagnosed with diabetes is often a shock for the individual concerned as well as their family and friends.
Diabetes is a serious disease but the good news is that once you have been diagnosed you can immediately begin to learn how to manage it properly. The sooner effective management is put in place the better you will feel.
Diabetes Tasmania offers a full range of services to assist you in learning how to effectively manage your diabetes and when and where to ask for help when you need it.
In the drop down box at the side under Our Services you will find information on all of our programs.
