Today marks the second day of the Australasian Diabetes Congress 2018 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The Australasian Diabetes Congress is a premier event for all health professionals specializing in diabetes, working with people with diabetes or having an interest in diabetes. This is also a very exciting event for Diabetes SA, as we have an information stand in the exhibition hall, with the potential of reaching lots of health professionals working in the field. Five of our abstracts have been accepted, and three posters have also been accepted for the poster exhibits.

Diabetes SA will have two oral presentations on Thursday 23 August - if you are a health professional attending the congress and are interested to hear about our recent work undertaken by the health services team in the culturally and linguistically diverse area; and sick day management in correctional facilities – we look forward to seeing you:

Thursday 23 August, 2.1 Session – 15 mins ADEA Orals (8.30am-10.30am, Riverbank 8):
Claire Oliver, Diabetes SA

Thursday 23 August, 2.4 Session – 15 mins ADEA Orals (3.30pm-5.30pm, Riverbank6):
Fiona Benton, Diabetes SA

We will provide more information in our next Healthe-News for health professionals, you can subscribe here to be the first to know: http://www.diabetessa.com.au/general/e-newsletter.html

In today's video, we have Alex, Casey and Cooper (with his epic style on the flying fox!), a bit of cheering for Laura… We also asked Evie what was her favourite part and why she decided to come on the camp. https://youtu.be/kYOYzZfbriY #type1diabetes

The campers learnt that there are no barriers to living with type 1 diabetes, and enjoyed activities such as flying fox, giants swing, low ropes course and canoeing. Here's Lexi and Danica, looking forward to go on the flying fox! https://youtu.be/qp7t0_IZX9c #type1diabetes #kidscamp #Adelaide

The 2018 Diabetes SA Kids Camp was a fantastic opportunity for these children to share their own stories and experiences of diabetes, and learn from each other. We will be sharing more Kids Camp videos this week, so stay tuned! https://youtu.be/TILk7kMY1ns #Adelaide #type1diabetes
