Patient Leader

I am a diabetes patient advocate & peer leader, & the creator/author of the widely-read blog, Diabetogenic. I present regularly at conferences around the globe speaking about the importance of patient-centred care & considering the patient perspective when developing resources & activities for people with chronic conditions. An active member of the global diabetes online community, I co-founded the #OzDOC tweet chat specifically for Australians with diabetes. I'm well-versed in social media, its influence on people living with health conditions & its application in peer support. I live in Melbourne with my husband, daughter & pets, & drink too much coffee. All done while wearing stripes!
