Diabetes Screening Complications Research Initiative (DiScRi)

Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia. With the increase in diabetes there is also an increase in associated complication including heart disease, kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease and cognitive impairment as well as depression. Dr Jelinek coordinates DiScRi, which screens members of the public in the Albury-Wodonga region within a 300km radius in some cases.

DiScRi is an international research project, which provides information on health and disease prevention and includes research groups from the United Kingdom, Germany, Finland, Austria, Canada, Brazil and Australia.
