A public hearing will be held on Friday, 1 March 2024 at Parliament House in Canberra as part of the House Health Committee’s inquiry into diabetes.

The Department of Health and Aged Care will give evidence about the Australian Government’s work on addressing diabetes and obesity. The Committee will also hear evidence from the Department of Education about the role of the Australian Curriculum in supporting young Australians to develop healthy habits and skills, and Jess Hart, who lives with type 1 diabetes, about her experiences travelling with diabetes devices.

The Chair of the Committee, Dr Mike Freelander MP, said: ‘Throughout the inquiry, the Committee has heard about different ways to improve the way we prevent, diagnose and manage diabetes and obesity in Australia. We will explore these ideas in more detail with the Department of Health and Aged Care at our public hearing on Friday.’

The Deputy Chair of the Committee, Mrs Melissa McIntosh MP, said: ‘We are looking forward to hearing from the Department of Education about ways that the Australian Curriculum can positively influence the health and wellbeing of young people and help them to develop life-long healthy habits.’
