Andrea C Hunt, RN, MsHS, CDE

I first met Anita in July 2008, when she attended a Basic Training Program for Nurses in Nassau Bahamas. She was an active participant in the two day program of training, and demonstrated keen interest in participating in the vision of providing education to all people with diabetes in the Bahamas. Since that time, I have watched with keen pleasure as she continued with her dream – enhancing her knowledge base, participating in conferences, completing her certification as a CCDE and most recently, she became involved in more intensive diabetes management – participating in advanced programmes of insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose management. In addition to all of this, her excitement and passion has become her trademark; as she has coordinated and participated in numerous community programmes on various islands in the Bahamas. I wish Anita all the very best and look forward to hearing about the positive outcomes from her activities.
