2018 Annual Report
2018 at a glance...
● We continue to make inspiring additions to the Global Postcard series with
our Audio and Video postcards.
● We published 18 Beta Change Global Postcards and several articles on our
blog.
● We produced a total of 9 Beta Change Minisodes in 2018.
● We sharpened our focus on telling diverse stories to reach the global diabetes
community.
Our Vision
To create a world where
diabetes is not a barrier to
living a full life.
Our Mission Our Values
To create a global network
and foster collaboration
between all stakeholders
within the diabetes
community & together provide
adequate and sustainable
access to diabetes
medication, equipment,
education and support to all
people living with diabetes by
2025.
We create opportunities.
We bring people together.
We strive for equal access.
We empower people with
diabetes.
Be empowered. Be inspired. Be the change.
A Word from the Beta Change Team
Every person experiences the world in a different way, and each story provides a new and unique perspective
to the world we live in. As members of Beta Change, we often hear people with diabetes say that living with
this condition can be isolating and lonely - until they meet someone else living with diabetes or discover the
diabetes community online or IRL. As healthy as it is to share our experiences of what it’s like to live with
diabetes in our day-to-day lives, no one will really understand better than someone else who also lives with it.
Exchanging these stories gives hope and inspires those in a dark place not to give up. They motivate others to
fight harder for their community and remind us that life is precious. Some stories change us and stay with us
forever. These stories can also help those who don’t live with diabetes better understand what we go through
each day, and the challenges we face and the achievements that are meaningful to us.
Most importantly, these stories contribute toward a shift in the way people think and talk about diabetes, which
is important in this society where we constantly hear noise about the negativity and blame associated with
diabetes. Our stories remind others that there is a person behind the condition and that human lives are
complex and not just about diabetes management. At Beta Change, we show the world what people with
diabetes can achieve - and that none of us are doing this alone.

Katie spoke with Cate about
the challenges she faced living
in Kenya with type 1 diabetes.
Cate was a bright light and a ball of passion in her efforts to improve conditions for people
living with diabetes around the world. She was an advocate with T1International, working
with our friend Elizabeth to have an impact on the community that reached beyond Kenya.
In early 2019, Cate passed away due to complications from surgery. Her loss is felt
throughout the diabetes community. We thank Cate for sharing her light with us and hope
her story continues.

Juggling full

running a small
organisation is
not easy!
In September

Murphy, See How You Shine!,
mentioned her involvement with
Beta Change in an interview with
Sassy Mama. We’re excited to
grow the Beta Change community
with contributors like Wei Teng!
Coming in 2019
We’re looking out for a website content manager to help streamline access to all of our
media. If this is you, feel free to reach out to the team: betachangenetwork@gmail.com
Our written content will focus on sharing stories from the community through our Global
Postcards (in text, audio, and video) in multiple languages to make our content more globally
accessible. We will shift away from publishing articles in lieu of sharing thoughts from the
Beta Change team on our blog.
We’re trialing the use of LinkedIn as platform to connect, support and empower diabetes
advocates around the world. Find us on Beta Change - Diabetes Advocate Network and let
us know what you think!
We are continuing to develop a new podcast series.
2019 could be the year we take the plunge to formally register as an organisation - we would
love your thoughts on this, so feel free to reach out to us with your ideas or expertise.

New Faces
  • 9. We also welcomed a special person, Cate Ndwiga, to our December Beta Change Minisode about Universal Health Coverage Day 2018. Katie spoke with Cate about the challenges she faced living in Kenya with type 1 diabetes. Cate was a bright light and a ball of passion in her efforts to improve conditions for people living with diabetes around the world. She was an advocate with T1International, working with our friend Elizabeth to have an impact on the community that reached beyond Kenya. In early 2019, Cate passed away due to complications from surgery. Her loss is felt throughout the diabetes community. We thank Cate for sharing her light with us and hope her story continues.

  • 14. Beta Change co-founder and Deakin University Alumni member Ashley Ng was profiled and featured for World Diabetes Day in 2018 on the university’s website. Ashley shared how she uses her education at Deakin to give back to the diabetes community.
  • 15. 1 Beta Change relies on the goodwill of volunteers to keep going. Juggling full time work and running a small organisation is not easy! In September 2018, Ashley wrote a guest blog post for The Happy Academic on balancing life in academia with running Beta Change while managing her health. 2 Wei Teng Chen, author of Murphy, See How You Shine!, mentioned her involvement with Beta Change in an interview with Sassy Mama. We’re excited to grow the Beta Change community with contributors like Wei Teng!
  • 16. Coming in 2019 We’re looking out for a website content manager to help streamline access to all of our media. If this is you, feel free to reach out to the team: betachangenetwork@gmail.com Our written content will focus on sharing stories from the community through our Global Postcards (in text, audio, and video) in multiple languages to make our content more globally accessible. We will shift away from publishing articles in lieu of sharing thoughts from the Beta Change team on our blog. We’re trialing the use of LinkedIn as platform to connect, support and empower diabetes advocates around the world. Find us on Beta Change - Diabetes Advocate Network and let us know what you think! We are continuing to develop a new podcast series. 2019 could be the year we take the plunge to formally register as an organisation - we would love your thoughts on this, so feel free to reach out to us with your ideas or expertise.
