Melinda Martin-Khan is a health scientist whose focus is quality health.
As a person with both a chronic illness and a role as a scientist, Melinda has been able to see that for many people (including herself), enjoying a quality healthy lifestyle for the long term can be really challenging. It's not about making a decision one day, and then smooth sailing. It's about making that decision for quality of health in small ways every day.
For many of us there is a constant tension between our journey towards quality of health, and our daily health challenges. Despite that, we forge forward always maintaining hope of a better tomorrow as we overcome those challenges one step at a time.
Melinda believes that there is existing evidence that can help us make simple adjustments to our life to eliminate some of the challenges we have to overcome each day in our journey towards quality of health. She also believes that we can be a part of finding new evidence to help make a difference to the future of public health.
As a health scientist and blogger, Melinda is involved with organisations, health systems and individuals around the world to change the way we measure and create quality health.
