Community type 2 diabetes awareness and screening - Port Lincoln

Friday 30 April 2021, 9.30am - 4.00pm

One in 6 adults are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes – that equates to 180, 000 South Australians.

Could it be you? Take the test below.

To combat these concerning numbers, Diabetes SA, funded by Country SA PHN and supported by volunteers from the Lions District 201C1, are conducting Community type 2 diabetes awareness and screening events.

The event is an extension of Diabetes SA’s state-wide diabetes awareness campaign called facethefacts.

The purpose of the event is to ensure you, and people in your region, know their own risk score and what to do next. It also aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes, and to provide everyone an opportunity to be screened free of charge, so please come along.
