It's National Diabetes Week and Marathon Health is well placed to educate country Australians about diabetes with our team of highly skilled Credentialed Diabetes Educators. Marathon Health are eager to provide the community with choice when it comes to their health care and offer a range of diabetes services such as the group education program Type 2 and You.
