DAFNE Refresher Day - Melbourne - BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL!

Diabetes Australia – Vic will be running a DAFNE Refresher Day in Melbourne this year. This session will give you the chance to review and revise the DAFNE principles, discuss particular aspects of the course such as physical activity, and carbohydrate counting, and of course, meet or catch-up with other DAFNE graduates. So regardless of when you completed your course, if you would like to refresh your DAFNE knowledge then we would love to see you there!
