Become an Ambassador

We are very proud of our Ambassadors who help us put the spotlight on diabetes and who help share our story on finding the cures for diabetes..

Have you met Jenni Baird??

Jenni is our first celebrity Ambassador and joined us recently to meet one of our researchers Professor Grant Morahan who directs research at the WA Centre for Diabetes Research in Perth. Jenni has a family member living with type 1 diabetes and has seen how tough and continuous the regime is.
