Karen is an experienced HPCP registered dietitian, and currently works as a Senior Teaching Fellow at Warwick Medical School. She is Course Director for the Certificate in Diabetes Care course and involved in the Masters degree programme. These courses are designed for health care professionals (GP’s, practice nurses, pharmacists and dietitians) who want to improve their knowledge of the treatment of diabetes.
There is so much in the news about the right or wrong diet, and what has worked for individuals, that it can be hard to make a balanced view of what will work taking into account lifestyle, commitments and tastes. People with diabetes, or those who have been told they are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes should have reliable, evidence based advice on which diet options are appropriate for them. Karen continues clinical work in the NHS and is an accredited educator for the DESMOND programme (type 2 diabetes).
