Kellion Victory Award
Australians who have lived with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes for 50 years or more are eligible for a Kellion Victory Award.
Each year during National Diabetes Week in July, Diabetes WA hosts a presentation event that recognises Western Australians who have lived full lives with the condition.
Carers of Kellion recipients are also eligible to receive a recognition award.
Diabetes WA encourages doctors, healthcare professionals and individuals to nominate likely recipients. Substantiating information is not always easy to obtain and proposers are asked to assist by providing copies of records and/or dates of diagnosis or initial hospital admission where possible.
If you wish to receive the medal or nominate someone for the Kellion Victory or Carers Award, please download and fill in the Kellion Victory Medal 2020 application form, email our community engagement team or call us on 1300 001 880 for more information.
All applications are evaluated by the Kellion Victory Medal Committee.
