About the Program

Join us for an evening with Dr. Graham Ogle, who will discuss the perilous situation of young people with diabetes in less-resourced countries, and how the IDF Life for a Child Program and its partners in many countries are working together in creating an encouraging future for young people who live with T1D in lower-income countries. Access to life-saving treatment for T1D’s is often difficult, and sometimes impossible, to achieve in less-resourced countries. Without support, many young people die soon after being diagnosed. Those who survive develop complications, such as eye damage and kidney failure.

Dr. Graham Ogle is a pediatric endocrinologist in Sydney, Australia. Since the 1990’s he has worked in Papua New Guinea and Cambodia. Beginning in 2000 he has been the General Manager of the International Diabetes Federation Life for a Child Program, which supports the care of 18,000 young people with diabetes in 42 countries, with the vision that no child should die of diabetes. Dr. Ogle has been awarded the Harold Rifkin Award for Distinguished International Service in the Cause of Diabetes by the American Diabetes Association in 2013.
