Susie Birney

Advocate for Obesity; EPCO Secretary


Susie Birney lives with a food disorder called ARFID; she understands that there is not only one cause for obesity and not one treatment which will always work. Type 2 Diabetes and other co-morbidities have been health barriers for her since her 30’s. Since 2016, Susie has been a patient representative with the ASOI and an Irish representative with ECPO. This led to the start of creating a national patient led organisation ICPO from 2018. She shares her experiences to help to improve the lives of those who live with obesity.
