She also regularly fronts medical programmes and is involved with health related PR activities and campaigns involving radio days and press briefings.


Dr Dawn Harper gave a really inspirational talk to our team last week. Her anecdotes were amusing and light hearted yet she still managed to get the serious health related messages across to the audience. Dr Dawn covered a range of topics and the audience were left with food for thought. She was really down to earth and the audience instantly warmed to her and her sense of humour, as demonstrated by the success of the Q&A session. I really believe that Dr Dawn Harper was the perfect choice for the first day of our event and feedback on her session has been brilliant.
