"Don't let the stigma create self-doubt. Don't let it take hold & create that self-blame.” -Dr Jane Speight

You've reached out about the diabetes stigmas you've experienced.  I've seen them played out in the clinic and hospital settings.  We can do better for you.  I know we can.  Listen to how Dr Jane Speight pulls diabetes stigmas into the light through her research.  Soak in her recommendations on how to start navigating those.  Whether you are someone who lives with diabetes, or cares for someone with diabetes, this episode has something for you.

More about Dr Speight:
Jane is the Foundation Director of the Australian Centre for Behavioural Research in Diabetes (ACBRD), established in 2010 as a partnership for better health between Diabetes Victoria and Deakin University. She has a PhD in health psychology from Royal Holloway, University of London, is a chartered psychologist, a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Jane leads a large and varied program of research in Australia, with established and ongoing international collaborations (particularly in the UK and Denmark), through which she aims to improve the quality of life and self-care of people with diabetes, and encourage healthcare professionals to better understand the impact of diabetes and its treatment from the individual’s perspective. 

Jane has published 160+ articles in peer-reviewed journals, two books, several book chapters, and 220+ conference abstracts. Google Scholar indicates there have been >6,200 citations of her work.  Her research has been cited 118% more than expected for similar publications (same year, type and discipline); more than twice the world average (1.0) and well above the Australian average (1.48). Twenty-one percent of her publications are among the top 10% cited worldwide, and her research has been cited in more than 100 countries. In 2018, she was honoured to be the subject of a Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology profile: ‘Jane Speight: tackling diabetes and its stigma Down Under’.
