We are thrilled to welcome Steve Renouf as ADEA’s first Ambassador!
Steve spoke at our World Diabetes Day event, as we officially announced his Ambassadorship, explaining why Diabetes education is important to him.
‘I’d like to say thanks for the privilege from ADEA for asking me to be one of your Ambassadors.
‘For me it is very important, obviously.
‘Having diabetes for the last 27 years – and I have five children with it – Diabetes Educators have been the number one support system that our family have relied on.
‘So for me to be a part of the team, I’m very honoured and privileged…thank you very much.’
