From fellow South African born/British citizen CLAUDINE MATTHEWS
To set the stage for the amazing month ahead, I’ll be starting with Claudine Matthews who has worn many hats throughout her career! She is a registered dietitian, associate lecturer, motivational speaker and an advocate for improving nutritional therapy in sickle cell treatment. When I read Claudine’s professional journey, it gave me all the feels! I felt sad, empathetic, happy, empowered and inspired. Thank you so much Claudine!
