What an amazing event!! Beautiful surroundings at Perth CIty Farm, fresh healthy refreshments and unique living gifts for all guests. Thank you to all who attended and to everyone who helped out on the day and night. We loved having you and could see how much you enjoyed being in the room.

Over 100 people joined us on the eve of World Diabetes Day to discuss why we haven't found a cure for diabetes yet with a panel of experts who brought their incrdible wealth of knowledge and experience to share.

From stem cell research to islet cell tranplantation; technology inventions to immune therapy. The panel grew our understanding on why we haven't found a cure for diabetes yet and, just how important research is.

Caroline Rudnicka shared her story on living with diabetes, the discrimnation and shame she felt that led her to a career as a diabetes researcher. Incredible!! You can watch her videos on our YouTube chanel
