Teen Camp 2018

Diabetes SA held their annual Teen Camp for teenagers living with type 1 diabetes at Mylor Baptist Camp on Saturday 17 February to Sunday 18 February 2018. At camp we had 29 teenagers aged between 13 to 16 years, staff from Diabetes SA's Health Services Team and a group of volunteers consisting of doctors, nurses, credentialled diabetes educators and adult leaders who live with type 1 diabetes, who all had an action packed adrenaline pumping weekend.

The weather was clear and sunny for most of the camp weekend and the mood of everyone on camp certainly was great!

During the weekend the teens got to know each other through activities consisting of the giant swing, flying fox, archery, high ropes, canoeing, swimming and the challenge course which was a new activity that Diabetes SA hadn't participated in before. The high ropes and giant swing were a big hit with the teens with many of them conquering their fears and scaling new heights.

Saturday night was Movie Night with the teens either watching Maze Runner or playing alternative outdoor activities with some of our leaders.

For many of the teens it was their first time on camp and being around others living with type 1 diabetes. It was a perfect opportunity for them to make new friends and learn from each other and their experiences with diabetes. For others it was a great opportunity to learn more about their own diabetes and develop new skills. Prizes were awarded to some of the teens for star achievements, conquering new experiences or challenges and going above and beyond to help others.

Diabetes SA cannot run these camps without the cooperation of staff, volunteers, leaders and teens – so a big THANK YOU goes out to everyone involved – it was a memorable weekend for everyone involved and a great success!

Diabetes SA Research

Diabetes SA Market Research

Since 1953 the delivery of services to people with diabetes including their carer's and families has largely been the domain of Diabetes SA but with recent changes including the redirection of product to pharmacy and the growing availability of diabetes services and programs, the Board have committed to conducting market research that suitably informs the needs and views of people in relation to the services linked to diabetes and the channels to access them.

The results of this research will inform the Association's strategic direction and the development of a future business model that will ensure the long-term sustainability of the Association.

JDRF One Ride

Using pedal power to accelerate T1D research

jdrfJDRF One Ride is a global cycling event to raise funds for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and 2018 marks the 15th anniversary of the event in Australia. Next April, some of Australia's top businesses will send a team to South Australia's stunning Barossa Valley to raise funds for vital medical research. While challenging themselves on a demanding cycling route through remarkable scenery, the cyclists will help speed life-changing breakthroughs for Aussies living with the disease.

T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin, a hormone that turns food into energy.

T1D strikes both children and adults suddenly. It is not caused by diet or lifestyle. People with T1D require constant blood glucose testing through painful finger pricks, and a constant supply of insulin by injection or pump, just to stay alive.

The funds raised at One Ride are vital to JDRF's continued funding for research. More than 120,000 Australians live with this lifelong disease - until we find a cure.

Riders are supported by JDRF during their training and fundraising for One Ride, and of course on the weekend itself. The event offers a choice of professionally-managed cycling routes - 35, 80, 120 or 160km - and attracts a lively group from bike fanatics to beginner cyclists, from a variety of businesses and backgrounds.

One Ride will take over the Novotel Barossa Valley for the whole weekend, including a convenient start and finish from the hotel itself. Ride straight back into the venue after your big day and enjoy all of the onsite comforts.

It's a weekend where the love of cycling meets lasting camaraderie and the shared goal of achieving something great. Your involvement in the Ride will power T1D research and help JDRF speed life-changing breakthroughs for Australians living with this disease.

So what are you waiting for? Bike it up for a full weekend, Friday April 20-Sunday April 22 2018. Or join us for an extraordinary Saturday April 21 2018.

Register today at ride.jdrf.org.au and join a passionate corporate and philanthropic community for an indulgent, inspiring weekend away that's changing lives.

See you there.

Yours sincerely,
Tamara Aitchison

Diabetes SA Market Research

flindersTo ensure our continuing relevance to people with diabetes, in particular our members in South Australia, the Board have sought the services of a University based market research team to investigate and report on the services that Diabetes SA should look to develop in order to continue our vital role of empowering people to live well with diabetes in the context of the dynamic and changing environment in which we operate.

The Association is pleased to advise that we are working closely with Dr Lara Stocchi and her team at Flinders Business (Flinders University of South Australia).

The aim of the research is to understand:

  • The current level of utilisation of Diabetes SA services and overlap with the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) and services available through other organisations.
  • Perceptions of Diabetes SA services and future needs and preferred channels for accessing services.

The project entails a series of focus groups and an online survey to gather the views of members and non-members in relation to services linked to diabetes. 

Phase 1 (focus groups) is now complete and we will shortly commence phace 2 (online survey).


Should you have any questions about the project please contact Dr Lara Stocchi and Dr Ashokkumar Manoharan, College of Business, Government & Law, Flinders University, phone: (08) 8201 2707, email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

How to get involved

As focus groups are now complete, over the coming weeks our members will be invited to participate in an online survey providing responses to a range of questions.
