  • Mobile Diabetes Awareness Service

    Pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes are at epidemic proportions in New Zealand with the Auckland region over represented in certain populations. This programme works with those who have the highest rates of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes in Auckland creating that awareness and preventing diabetes where possible that is needed on a more intimate level within the community.

    Diabetes New Zealand Auckland Branch launched our Mobile Service in 2014,  that goes to where these communities work, gather, play, pray and eat. The use of health navigators from the local culture is also vital to the success.

    Those who have been identified as either at risk of diabetes through testing in the community setting, will be visited by the navigators in either their community or work place to ensure the engagement with primary care services occurs.

    Our Mobile Diabetes Awareness Service Van is very popular with workplaces, events and communities filling up our calendar every month and at least three times a week.

    To book our Mobile Diabetes Awareness Van, please email us or text or call our Mobile Van Hotline on 021 249 0453.

    ‘I was very pleased to contact your service. I was feeling overwhelmed with my current situation however knew that I needed to get a diabetes test done. While I was waiting for my turn to be tested Susan welcomed me, helped my overwhelming feelings calm down, she was very approachable and understanding. Sandy followed through by assisting me with assurance that things were going to be okay and was very understanding. She encouraged that I seek more medical advice for my blood pressure results. She phoned my manager and found me a local GP that I could visit right away. I was very appreciative of these ladies and all the help, care and advice they gave me. Thank you so much!’
