Amy Campbell, RD, CDE
My name is Amy Campbell and I am a dietitian and certified diabetes educator. I currently work in public health in Lexington, Kentucky. I have been working in diabetes for over 7 years.
Kentucky has a strong network of diabetes educators and I work closely with the Kentucky Diabetes Prevention and Control Program and Kentucky Diabetes Network to develop programs for people with or at risk for diabetes at a state level.
For my local AADE chapter, the Kentucky Association of Diabetes Educators (KADE), I worked with web developers to create a highly functional website for our members. I enjoy seeing how technology can benefit both diabetes professionals and patients.
Diabetes is such an interesting field because self-management plays a major role in good blood sugar control. It is really neat when a patient comes back and is excited to share with me how exercising lowers their blood sugar. Those "aha" moments in diabetes education are what make what I do so enjoyable.
