Concessions: Diabetes educator and nurse, Annette Parkes-Considine, is advocating for health care concession cards for adults with type 1 diabetes to make their life-long need for medications and treatments more affordable.

ADVOCATES are celebrating the commitment of both major political parties to provide subsidised access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for all people living with type 1 diabetes, but diabetes educator Annette Parkes-Considine would like to see the support go one small step further.
