Education in Nutrition was created by Sophie Blackmore and Jo Tyler in 2011. We provide on-line professional development to dietitians and nutritionists.
My aim is to create the space in which the many and amazing talented dietitians share with each other the great work they are doing.
I myself am an accredited practicing dietitian and registered nurse with more than 25 years’ practical experience working in health care. I currently live and work in Melbourne in private practice.
I have written two books on nutrition: Fast Food and No Play Make Jack a Fat Boy: Creating a Healthier Life for You and Your Family (Pan Macmillan, 2005), and Nourish: Food for Your Baby (Ibis Publishing, 2004). And in 2012 I developed an App eNutrition for dietitians to easily calculate client energy and nutrient requirements.
I see my role as making it easy for health professionals to access both good nutrition information and opportunities for continuing education.
I am an event manager with over 18 years experience in organising seminars, conferences and workshops for health professionals.
I now specialise in webinars and their recordings. This online medium provides a wonderfully quick and easy access for busy dietitians, particularly those in rural and remote areas in this large country of ours.
