Michele Matta
Doctoral Student, Nutrition, Public Health and International Health Communication

Healthcare should be available to all citizens. With a background in nutrition, a specialization in public health and a health communication, I am currently in the process of building a thesis to uncover associations between fatty acids and breast cancer risk, as well as mortality. In a nutshell, I am looking into improving nutrition guidelines by studying the effect of fats on us.
In the same scope, I believe that our generation has the means to improve healthcare with the right tools at hand. This is why empowering students and young professionals with the right tools, by providing opportunities to meet and network in an international & interdisciplinary environment enabling collaboration, is an asset to tackle Public Health challenges.
The aim is not world peace, but healthcare improvement even if it is by 0.001
