Presented by Erin Freeman BAppSc (Sp & Ex Sc)

Erin Freeman is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist with 14 years’ experience in the industry, with the last 6 of those years specialising in diabetes though her work with Diabetes NSW. She is lucky to work in a multidisciplinary team alongside a diabetes educator and dietitian.

Over the past 6 years her diverse role has allowed her to deliver clinical exercise services to people with diabetes both individually and on a group basis; work with children with type 1 diabetes and their parents to educate them on managing exercise and type 1; and deliver education in the form of seminars and workshops to people with diabetes encouraging them to incorporate exercise into their daily lives.

She was on the Diabetes NSW project team who implemented the BEAT IT program as part of the Federally funded Healthy Communities Initiative from 2010-2013 – delivering training to health professionals, assisting local councils and providers to implement their BEAT IT programs at a local level and eventually taking on the role of overseeing the whole project in the role of project manager. The BEAT IT program was undertaken by nearly 3,000 people with or at risk of diabetes and Erin presented data from this project during the 2012 Be Active Conference held in Sydney.

Erin has a real passion for working with people with diabetes and supporting others who want to work with people with diabetes to educate and support them to include safe exercise as part of their normal diabetes management
