Opportunity for young people
The Board of Healthy Living NT is keen to encourage younger people to join, to speak about issues facing them and be a voice on the Board for other young people affected by diabetes. With this in mind, we have developed a CPD program valued at up to $5,000 to support a younger person’s participation on the Board. Being a member of the Board will help you gain learning and develop experience in governance and management. It will also give you the opportunity to participate and to share a young person’s perspective on issues.
