Welcome to the future of diabetes care

The global pandemic of COVID-19 is changing our world and health systems profoundly. We believe this is an opportunity to shape the changes we want to see happen in diabetes care. 

We have been moved and inspired by countless stories of people in the diabetes community working tirelessly to respond to the challenges of the crisis.

For example, we have seen:  

  • Rapid scaling of online clinics
  • Diabetes specialist guidance developed for inpatient care
  • The development and roll out of virtual education courses for health care professionals 
  • Emotional well-being guidance and advice developed for people living with diabetes

Responsibility for change doesn’t lie in the hands of a few, heroic individuals. It lies in all of us.

Now is the time to bring together our energy, ideas and hopes for the future. Now is the time to unleash the collective power and potential of our community.

Join the Lab community

Throughout June and July we held an initial exploratory phase of the Lab - listening to the diabetes community about what we are learning in this moment of a global pandemic, and what that means for diabetes care in the future. The insights and voices from these sessions will inform the next phase of the Lab.
