Awards and scholarships
The Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA) is committed to developing and maintaining a skilled diabetes education workforce with experience and expertise that is relevant to the current health care environment. The ADEA advocates for diabetes education and care that is empowering, effective and adapted to the individual's needs and life circumstances.
Therefore, ADEA acknowledges and rewards the pursuit of excellence in diabetes education and care through our Awards and Scholarship Program. Some of the awards, grants and scholarships are provided in collaboration with, and with the assistance of, our business partners and sustaining members.
