MAIN Tayside nutrition and dietetic lead receives prestigious award

Dr Janet Baxter, nutrition and dietetic service lead (nutrition support), was recently presented with a prestigious award at the annual meeting of the British Association for Parenteral & Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN) in Harrogate.

The John Lennard Jones Medal is the highest accolade that the BAPEN can bestow. It is awarded to individuals who have given significant and consistent contribution to the association over many years.

Dietetic consultant in public health nutrition Joyce Thompson said, “Janet is a very worthy recipient of the award given her lifelong passion and dedication to nutrition support, and her significant and consistent contribution to BAPEN over many years.”

BAPEN is a charitable association that raises awareness of malnutrition and works to advance the nutritional care of patients and those at risk from malnutrition in the wider community.

It works with members and national partners across the UK to ensure that all individuals who are malnourished, or at risk of malnutrition, in any healthcare or social setting are identified early through nutrition screening and receive appropriate, person centred treatment.
