WAAPA graduate also an ambassador
WA Academy of Performing Arts graduate Jenni Baird is Diabetes Research WA’s first celebrity ambassador.
The A Place to Call Home actress was a guest at a CinéfestOZ lunch in Margaret River last August, which raised funds for the group.
“One of my cousins has a son who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes around the age of eight and it has been hugely challenging for them as a family,” Baird said.
“My cousin described it as swapping the diaper bag for a diabetes bag and never giving up the baby monitor.”
