As a Registered Dietitian working in patient and employee education and training I’ve put together many programs, so over my career I have seen many good presenters. Every now and then you get the pleasure to experience a great speaker. One who stands out. One that the audience remembers as being special. Above the norm. A memorable presentation that stays with you. One such speaker is Theresa Garnero. She is on point. Professional, yet relaxed and entertaining. I’ve seen her speak to lay audiences and professional colleagues. She knocks it out of the park every time.
Kevin L Rayburn, RD
Theresa speaks to groups as small as ten and as large as several thousand. She gives regular keynote addresses across the United States to healthcare professionals and patients alike. She is an engaging public speaker and often gets feedback for having the best slides.
Her favorite topics include:
- Dance and diabetes: an innovative approach to prevention, management and ongoing support.
- Using therapeutic humor as a strategy with self-care behaviors.
- Providing cultural sensitive diabetes care and education for the LGBT community.
- Diabetes basics: what is it and what next?
- Crafting a seminar to meet the needs of your group.
