Her research career is focus on understanding the social determinants that affect women’s health in low-income communities and how to bring low carbohydrate diets into those areas to treat metabolic diseases.
Georgina believes that through Eat Better South Africa programs women are empowered and consequently, the wider community is influenced by virtue of their position in the household. She advocates for a whole food based diet, low in sugar and refined carbohydrate that supports better and more affordable food solutions in these communities to address the impact of chronic disease.
