Bill Raby Diabetes Fellowship

About Bill Raby Diabetes Fellowship

The Bill Raby Diabetes Fellowship was established by the Board of the Diabetes Association of the NT Inc., trading as Healthy Living NT, in 2005 as a means of recognising the significant contribution of Bill Raby OBE to the Association and the well-being of people with diabetes in the NT.

From 2005-2015, the Fellowship supported health professionals resident in the NT to increase their knowledge of diabetes through financial support for Continuing Professional Development.


Over this period, the Fellowship offered funding support of over $97,000 to 30 health

professionals for diabetes CPD activities. 80% of approved applicants completed their CPD

successfully. Notably:


• 71% (17) of successful completions resulted in the health professional attaining a Graduate

Certificate in Diabetes Education and Management

• 87% (20) of successful completions were from health professionals practising outside the

greater Darwin region.


In 2015, the Board of Healthy Living NT reviewed the operation and effectiveness of the

Fellowship and re-aligned its objectives to more relevant and contemporary goals supported by a new Board of Governors consistent with revised objectives.


2018 Fellowship Aims

The aim of the Fellowship is to enhance the well-being of people with diabetes and the general community in the NT. Effective from the first funding round in 2018, Fellowship financial support can be made available to applicants in the following two categories:


a) Youth affected by diabetes
