Alka Chopra, RD, CDE

Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator & Creative Entrepreneur

I like to call myself "A Selfcare Dietitian"!
Incase you are thinking that selfcare is taking care of yourself only for your physical & mental health, I will differ with you. In my world "Selfcare" also means taking care of yourself professionally. When you are professionally satisfied it has a positive impact on your physical & mental health.

In the various roles that I have had in my career as a clinical dietitian, as a chronic disease program manager and professor, the one thing that kept coming back to my role/s was designing and facilitating professional trainings. Slowly but surely this became an integral part of my life. I was really enjoying the creation and facilitation process. That became an outlet for my creative outlet. And that is how this idea of creating courses and professional trainings came by.

Hi there, my name is Alka Chopra and I am a Registered Dietitian & a Certified Diabetes Educator. I have a keen interest in adult education and have been working steadily towards refining my skills to teach & train adults.
I hold the following certifications that are all embedded in adult education.

IHC Trainings (Institute for Healthcare Communication):
* Choices & Changes Faculty Trainer

CCMI Certifications (Centre for Collaboration, Motivation and Innovation):
* Brief Action Planning Trainer
* Motivational Training Trainer

Other relevant certifications:
* Certified Diabetes Educator
* Leader Trainer: Stanford Chronic Disease Self Management Program
* Licensed Facilitator: Craving Change
* Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management- Level 1

It is my hope that all courses and trainings in my school will be of great support to you personally and professionally.

So, go ahead and explore the courses, webinars and trainings.

With all good wishes
alka
