What I can offer as a Mentor

Professor Claire Palermo has inspired and educated over 700 dietetics students to consider and address the underlying issues to eating well, as well as developing their research skills so they are equipped to contribute evidence for improved practice. Professor Palermo has also mobilised a community of dietetics educators to change their assessment approaches. She has led the transformation of national competency standards for dietitians by engaging a broad group of industry and professional stakeholders so that dietitians are better prepared to manage the complex nutrition issues in our society and improve the health of the individuals and communities they serve.
