SUSANNA M. KEMPPAINEN
Early Stage Researcher
M.Sc., Registered Dietician
I work as an Early Stage Researcher in a clinical trial called "Effect of Lifestyle Intervention on Incident Diabetes in Individuals With Impaired Fasting Glucose and Low or High Genetic Risk for the Development of Type 2 Diabetes, T2D-GENE". The group- and internet-based trial including 635 men is conducted in the Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio.
I participate in coordinating the subject visits, producing counseling material, collecting the dietary data and counseling the groups. My PhD work investigates physical activity, diet and body weight changes and their effect on insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion.
