IAHA Q&A with Colin Mitchell – Diabetes Victoria

About my Mob:

Wemba Wemba Tribe Victoria/NSW, Mothers side

Gureng Gureng Tribe Far North Queensland, Fathers side

How I got involved with diabetes:

I discovered a passion for diabetes after screening & treating so many of my Elders & decided to delve into the area of diabetes & find out more about this blood condition to have a better understanding of the condition when working with clients.

I then applied for a job at diabetes Victoria & the rest is HISTORY, lol

Key Messages to share during Diabetes Week 2020:

Having diabetes during the COVID-19 Epidemic can be a stressful time, so ensure to keep up your regular health checks & always consult your health team regarding your diabetes & management.

This way you can be at peace & in good health with your management.
