Karen Pennington, RD/LD CDE

Diabetes Education

I have been a diabetes educator for about 30 years and feel my mission in life is to help people with diabetes be able to live a longer and happier life!

I grew up in Tuscaloosa County and graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS in nutrition.

I was the first dietitian in the state to become a diabetes educator.

My husband and I have 3 married children. We also have two grandchildren with more to come soon (we hope).

I enjoy gardening, canning, reading, and spending time with family.

As for living well with diabetes, I believe knowing is the first step and doing is the second but that both of these are easier with support.  I am available to support you through your journey with diabetes.
