Tackling Diabetes

Aid Worthy has been working with Diabetes Queensland since 2015 to produce close to twenty films designed to help people living with diabetes. The majority of the work has been done with the Indigenious Unit through a Peer Support Program designed by Erich Barkmeyer. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander volunteers tell their story of how they manage their illness and what practical tips have worked for them. Further discussion is encouraged by the volunteer through a closed Facebook group using a strengths based approach. The volunteer then moderates the group for several months to stimulate discussion and further learning.
