Hi, my name is Linda and I have worked in the health care field since 2004. I am a retired Practical Nurse and also hold certificates in Mental Health and Diabetes Education. I presently work as a Medical Transcriptionist / Editor.
Medicine is one of my passions, and I genuinely enjoy learning something new every day.
I also have experience with childhood obesity and bullying. When I was around ten years old, I started eating a lot of bread and sugar. As a result, I began to rapidly gain weight even though I was very active in a variety of sports. Therefore, I can relate to those who are overweight and the problems they experience on a day to day basis.
This website is my labor of love. My goal is to join the others who are providing useful, quality information to promote awareness of the epidemic of childhood obesity. Hopefully together we can change the future health of the next generation.
