What people are saying – diabetes

27 Feb 2014, Posted by Professor Niki Ellis in RACP

Recently I spoke to Paul Zimmett, a leading expert in diabetes in Australia and the rest of the world, and a Fellow.  As many of you will know he is very active in the creation of policy in this area at both State and Federal Government levels. I got the impression from him that the RACP was not currently an active player in this area.  Surely we have a lot to offer.  We have members who are doing research in this area, clinical experts – in both paediatric and adult medicine, public health experts in the promotion of healthy eating and physical activity, clinical experts in the management of the consequential diseases.

Is this an example of where our College could be greater than the sum of its parts?
