Member for Barker Tony Pasin has joined in the chorus and has backed the federal government's funding for Diabetes research.

The Federal Government will provide $54.5 million dollars for research that will provide new hope and support to the more that 120,000 Australians living with type 1 diabetes.

Mr Pasin said the funding will be provided through the Government’s landmark Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF).

Mr Pasin also said “This investment over the next four years will ensure that free glucose monitoring devices are available to over 37,000 eligible people, including many in Barker with type 1 diabetes from March 1st, 2019,”
