WAAPA grad­u­ate also an am­bas­sador

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.”
