The Low Vision Centre of Learning is thrilled to introduce Karen Denton.
Always a keen student and teacher, having a toddler diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes set Karen on a pathway that shaped her life. Having completed studies in General Nursing, Midwifery, Operating Theatre, Nursing Administration, Nursing Education, Psychiatric Nursing, and a Degree in Psychology, Karen was uniquely poised to utilize the varied skills for a thirty plus year career in Diabetes Education. During this time, lecturing internationally, Chairing Diabetes South Africa, Pan-Africa Diabetes Educators (5 years) and The South African Diabetes Educators (8 years) proved stimulating and a valuable basis for a move to the Middle East for a further 8 years where she continued her studies. On returning to South Africa, she has been delighted to re-integrate into the medical field with Retina SA where she functions as the Lead in Education and Advocacy and to be a Founder-Member of the Low Vision Centre of Learning
