Start your Walking Away journey
Walking Away from Diabetes is a component of the wider DESMOND program specifically designed for those who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The three hour program gives participants the opportunity to explore their personal risk and to identify the changes they need to make to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. The program has also been adapted to be delivered specifically to mothers who have previously had gestational diabetes and are therefore at a higher risk of developing diabetes.
DESMOND Australia offer one-day facilitator training for the Walking Away from Diabetes module for educators who have already completed the DESMOND Core and Newly Diagnosed/Foundation module training. If you are a health professional and are interested in the Walking Away module, but have not completed a DESMOND Core training day you will need to complete this prior to the Walking Away module.
