Call for collaboration to solve Australia’s metabolic health crisis

Published 13 December 2023

Tribe leader Tim Veron from Vively sums up his tribe’s DHCRC Curiosity Camp experience and outcomes.

“Australia is amid a metabolic health crisis with rising rates of diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and other metabolic health issues. At Curiosity Camp, we took a very broad approach to unpack this problem across a range of different stakeholders (including consumers, healthcare providers and policymakers) and identified that targeted research is required to identify the causes of the crisis and the potential solutions to address it.

During Curiosity Camp, we developed a comprehensive research program to investigate how Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs), wearables and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to tackle what is one of the largest health challenges of our generation. At the end of the week, we published the program online, which lists the key research questions we identified and is an open invitation to students and researchers to collaborate with us on this mission. Our vision is to harness the power of people, technology and data to develop creative, innovative and evidence-based solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of the population at scale.”
