Juliet Richards is a consultant pharmacist, credentialed diabetes educator and an certified practitioner in Lifestyle Medicine.
After working in large tertiary hospitals as a clinical pharmacist she started her own business called MyMedsHealth which provides clinical pharmacy, chronic disease management and other support services to general practices in SA. Juliet is passionate about health and nutrition and while appreciating the role of medications in chronic disease, she could see how they would simply mask or temporarily manage the underlying pathology. This meant progression was inevitable, translating into more medications. She felt she could offer so much more to her patients. She is currently undertaking a health coaching course to become a certified health coach. Juliet runs a diabetes clinic at a general practice she works with as a part of the Health Care Homes trial. She is also opening her own diabetes clinic with a focus on the root cause of disease and behaviour change. Lastly, Juliet works for the University of South Australia and loves teaching and inspiring young pharmacists.
