This year we will mark World Diabetes Day 2018 with an inspirational breakfast in Crawley where we will unveil our latest research grants and hear from one of Perth’s top endocrinologists.
Our ‘Being Extraordinary & Breaking Down Barriers’ event is on at the UWA Watersports Complex on Wednesday, November 14
Director of Diabetes Services at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital Dr Joey Kaye will speak about the challenges he’s faced in training to take on one of WA’s toughest physical challenges, the Ironman Western Australia event in December in Busselton.
Inspired by the determination of his patients with diabetes, Dr Kaye’s quest to complete the 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and 42.2km run before he turns 50 early next year is also a fundraiser for Diabetes Research WA.
