Diabetes program supports First Nations communities to achieve better health outcomes

Too Deadly for Diabetes is a ten-week educational and support program delivered through Aboriginal Medical Services. The Primary Health Network has recently partnered with Yerin Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Services on the NSW Central Coast, and Tobwabba Aboriginal Medical Service in Forster, to offer the research-based program to their local communities.

The Too Deadly for Diabetes program offers participants access to a meal plan and exercise program in conjunction with targeted education and motivation. It works alongside local allied health professionals to target sustainable weight loss and reductions in blood pressure and blood glucose levels as desired health outcomes.

The program was designed and is delivered by Exercise Physiologist, Sports Scientist and Researcher, Ray Kelly, a Gomeroi man.
