A registered dietitian, Professor Giroux has devoted her whole career to the education of dietitians, advancing dietetic research and knowledge, as well as the promotion of the dietetics profession and its importance in the promotion of health, the prevention and management of disease. Professor Giroux leads research to evaluate the impact of simulated experiential learning on the development of professional competencies, including interprofessional collaboration, which has helped to move dietetic education forward. For over two decades, she has been actively involved in professional affairs as a dietetic educator, a dietetic program accreditation surveyor, a member of the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) of Canada and its Accreditation Standards Development Working Group and a founding Chair of the French Network of Dietitians of Canada.
