Membership of DYA is free. The most common way people join our database is when a child is newly diagnosed at Starship and the Diabetes Team give us their contact details with the family’s permission.
Any person under 25 years living in the Auckland region is welcome to contact us to receive Youth Buzz and email updates. Anyone else with an interest in diabetes in young people is also welcome to join our database to receive electronic updates and news. Click here to join.
We also strongly encourage our families to utilise the resources available from our parent organisation, Diabetes New Zealand. You can sign up for free monthly email newsletters or subscribe to the Diabetes Wellness magazine, published four times a year and full of helpful articles and advice.
