Business Breakfast Chat with Bec Johnson
Join Stirling Business Association for our quarterly business breakfast event. We are looking forward to welcoming Bec Johnson, CEO of the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre as our speaker. Bec’s life has certainly been one of living with no limits. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 17 Bec has never let that stop her in her quest to fundamentally change diabetes care in Australia and live her life to the fullest.
Bec will be sharing her anecdotes that include establishing the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre in Stirling, her Rottnest swims and sharing some of the challenges (and wins) she’s had along the way. So come along to hear Bec’s inspiring journey and network with the SBA community over a delicious hot breakfast & coffee at our favourite coastal spot, The Sandbar.
