Meet one of our newer members, Lynda Menzies.
"I completed my Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition & Dietetics) in 2011. I currently work across two roles: as a clinical Dietitian and as the acting Nutrition & Dietetics Clinical Educator in the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service. In my education role, I help coordinate student placements within our health service, develop training initiatives for students and staff, and deliver interdisciplinary education alongside my educator colleagues. I love the diversity that this role brings, and the privilege of training our future generation of dietitians.
I have recently completed my Master of Health Professions Education with Monash University, through which I discovered ANZAHPE. I chose to become a member after attending the 2021 festival - I found the community to be extremely supportive towards newer members and encourages their participation within the field. The festivals and online events have not only helped to further develop my knowledge and skills as an educator, but they have also allowed me to network with like-minded educators from across Australia and New Zealand. I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to the ANZAHPE community as my career progresses."
