I worked with Angela on the Department of Health’s Change4Life programme to tackle childhood obesity. She is an expert in the area of diet and lifestyle, very knowledgeable about West African communities and is able to inspire people to make realistic changes to their diet and lifestyle. She brought valuable insight, bags of enthusiasm and passion to the project. She was a pleasure to work with.
