Ambassadors

Dr Susan Alberti AC, HonLLD, HonDUniv, FAICD – Ambassador

Susan Alberti has spent a lifetime advocating for a range of medical research priorities, as well as promoting the importance of healthy living and exercise, particularly for women.

Susan’s only child, Danielle, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes which eventually led to her premature death and Susan has been at the forefront of Australian and international efforts to cure, prevent and better treat Type 1 diabetes.

In recent years Susan has invested her time and resources more broadly in promoting healthier living initiatives including women in sport. She was the leading force behind the establishment of the Australian Football League’s elite women’s competition, which has had immediate flow on to increase the number of girls and women keeping active and fit by playing Australian Rules.

Susan and her foundation have invested millions of dollars in medical research and she continues to be involved in a range of ground-breaking health and lifestyle initiatives including establishing an Australia first dementia ‘village’ north of Melbourne to provide a safe and stimulating environment for sufferers of the condition.
