Miss Lynette Harper

About

I have been working full time as a senior lecturer in learning disability nursing since August 2015. Prior to this I worked in the NHS and private sector supporting people with a learning disability to improve their health and wellbeing.

My professional interests lie in working with service users to reduce health inequalities through improving lifestyle choices. I completed an MSc in Nutritional Medicine and have a keen interest in the benefits of optimal nutrition to improve the mental and physical health of people who have a learning disability.
