Point of Difference

Research is underway in Australia and across the world to find a cure for diabetes and to inform clinical guidelines. The ADEA Diabetes Research Foundation complements this work. The Foundation’s research program enables people living with diabetes and their diabetes care team to work together to identify questions, find answers and use this new knowledge to support people as they work hard every day to live well with their diabetes.
