Dr. Graham Ogle is a paediatric endocrinologist based in Sydney, Australia. He works for Diabetes NSW as General Manager for the Life for a Child Program, and is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Sydney. Graham graduated from the University of Sydney, and trained in paediatric endocrinology, doing research in growth and body composition. In the 1990s he lived in Papua New Guinea and in Cambodia working with the charity HOPE worldwide. From 2000-2012 he continued to oversee various health and education programs in Papua New Guinea. Life for a Child commenced in 2001. The program, based at Diabetes NSW in Sydney, supports the care of 22,000 children and youth with diabetes in 43 countries. Support is provided directly to existing diabetes services. The aim is to provide the best possible care, given local circumstances, to all children and youth with diabetes, with the vision that no child should die of diabetes. Graham was awarded the Harold Rifkin Award for Distinguished International Service in the Cause of Diabetes by the American Diabetes Association in 2013.
