About Indigenous Diabetic Foot Program

Jason Warnock is the person who manages the Indigenous Diabetic Foot Program. From Townsville and Palm Island in North Queensland, Jason has developed the educational resouces to encourage diabetic foot care for all people with diabetes. The goal is to prevent foot ulceration and amputation. Diabetic foot amputations can be prevented.

This can be achieved when the five planks of management are in place:

  1. Monitoring
  2. Education regarding foot care
  3. Skill development of 'how to' look after diabetic feet 
  4. Referral to appropriate health professionals
  5. Professional management of diabetes and the diabetic foot - a team approach.

 Contact Jason to find more information.


Jason Warnock, the developer, author and manager of the Indigenous Diabetic Foot Program, was awarded the “Bob and June Prickett” Churchill Fellowship on the 9th July 2008. Jason’s Churchill Fellowship is the 23rd sponsored by Bob and June Prickett. Mr Prickett was in attendance at Government House to witness the presentation of Jason’s Fellowship by Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce, Governor of Queensland. The Fellowship will enable an eight week study tour to USA and Canada. The study tour will investigate Indigenous Diabetic Health programs that focus on the prevention of diabetic foot amputations. Fellow podiatrist, business partner and wife, Ruth Warnock, will accompany Jason on the study tour. For more details, click this link: Details of the Study Tour
