Tharawal Group Diabetes Program

187 Riverside Drive, Airds, NSW 2560

The Family Diabetes Program is a 9-week group education program (1 individual assessment and 8 week group education sessions) adapted from Group Allied Health Services under Medicare for Patients with Type 2 Diabetes. Each session consists of a theory session followed by physical activity, all facilitated by an Aboriginal Health Worker, Dietitian and Exercise physiologist.

The Family Diabetes Program aims to provide a culturally appropriate and localised group education, to support and empower the local Aboriginal community to self-manage their diabetes and reduce their blood sugar.

Eligible participants include:

  • Patients living with Type 2 Diabetes
  • With current GP Management Plan (MBS.721/MBS.723)
  • Haven’t attended Group Allied Health Service (MBS.81100-81125) in current calendar year

Referrals from you GP is required prior to attending the program – Medicare Referral Allied Health Group Services (MDS.81100-81125).

Here’s what some of our previous participants had to say about the program:

“I’m gonna miss this group. Can we do this again?”

“I am now taking my medication as I see the importance of taking it”

“I am now going outside to play sport and games with my grandchildren to increase exercise and help my grandchildren get exercise”

“I am attending all my medical check-ups and medication appointments”

“I’ve reduced my insulin dosage”

“I feel emotionally and physically stronger”
