Lara Masoudi RD, CDE

Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator

Lara is a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator in Fraser Health. An enthusiastic provider of diabetes nutrition education to clients with type 1, type 2 and pre diabetes for the past 16 years, Lara enjoys connecting with her clients and their families, helping them to fit their diabetes into their lives and finding practical, manageable eating solutions through one-on-one counselling and group teaching.  

Being able to enhance people’s confidence, knowledge and skills to manage their diabetes motivated Lara to participate in a pilot project on how to integrate self-management support principles into diabetes care and volunteer as a leader of diabetes self-management community programs. Lara is a preceptor to UBC dietetic interns each year and values the two-way learning that occurs from mentoring.

Lara has participated on several shared working teams including developing insulin dose adjustment competencies for Fraser Health Registered Dietitians and diabetes class nutrition content for Fraser Health Diabetes Health Centres.

Lara is a member of Dietitians of Canada, the College of Dietitians of BC and the Canadian Diabetes Association Professional Section.
