Clinical Service Integration (Edmonton)
Michele Tavernini is the Associate Director, Clinical Service Integration and a registered dietitian (RD) at the Copeman Healthcare Centre in Edmonton. Her whole life she has held a particular interest in how the body processes energy, spending 17 years in a gastroenterology research lab before returning to school to study Food and Nutritional Science. Michele graduated with a BSc in 2006 and worked for 6 years as a dietitian for children and families living with diabetes. One of Michele’s passions is helping people live full lives with diabetes and helping them slow the progression of the disease. In 2010 she became a Certified Diabetes Educator. Michele enjoys dispelling myths, providing sound nutrition advice and counselling clients to appreciate the incredible machine their body is and the importance of providing premium fuel for optimal performance. In her time outside the clinic she enjoys dancing, running, skiing and spending quality time with friends and family.
