Energizer® partners with Diabetes Australia

Diabetes Australia is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Energizer® Australia. This new partnership will help to raise the profile of diabetes and Diabetes Australia in the hearts and minds of the general public.

Energizer® has 120 years history of innovation with batteries and made the first ever handheld torch, the first Inductive Charger, and currently, the makers of the world’s longest lasting AA and AAA batteries in high tech devices (Energizer® Ultimate Lithium ™).

Diabetes Australia CEO Professor Greg Johnson said it was very pleasing that more large companies and businesses like Energizer® were choosing to support the diabetes cause.

“Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia” he said “another 100,000 Australians developed diabetes in just the past year and the impact of diabetes on families, productivity and the health system is very serious.”

“Diabetes is often a silent condition in that many Australians have type 2 diabetes and don’t know it – they have not been diagnosed. Partnering with Energizer® means that diabetes will be more visible in supermarkets, pharmacies and retail outlets and this will make more people think about diabetes and their risk,” said Professor Greg Johnson.

“We are delighted to partner with Diabetes Australia to help support the 1.7 million Australians currently thought to be living with diabetes” said David Pattinson, Marketing Director, Energizer®.

Furthermore, Energizer® is donating $1 for every specially marked pack purchased to Diabetes Australia, to help fund the diabetes cause.
