“I am passionate about changing Australia’s Chronic Disease Crisis. With 1 in 5 Australians being affected by not just one but multiple chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are long lasting, have persistent effects, effecting personal circumstances, quality of life and broader social and economic effects. Chronic diseases are the leading cause of illness, disability and death in Australia, accounting for 90% of all deaths in 2011 and sadly the stats are most likely even higher now!” says Carla.
