Dylan discovered his passion for nutrition and healthcare while enrolled in the Masters in Food, Nutrition, and Health course in UCD.
The MSc in Preventive Cardiology afforded Dylan amazing opportunities to learn about disease prevention, patient-centred care and the impact of small lifestyle changes on a person’s overall health.
After completing the MSc, he began working in Croí and NIPC, managing databases, reporting and analysing projects and working as the administrator for Croí’s Centre for Lifesaving Training. Additionally, through Croí, he provided support at health screening events both in-house and in the community, carrying out blood pressure, pulse check & anthropometric measurements, and providing healthy lifestyle advice.
His research project ‘’Clinical outcomes of a phase III cardiac rehabilitation programme in the West of Ireland” was awarded ‘Best Research Project’.
Dylan currently work as a Research Assistant in NUIG, working on two projects; one focused on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and community first response, and one focused on the national ambulance service response to Covid-19.
