Matthew was previously an advocate for COPD.net.
For over 7 years Matthew has studied healthcare communications, including the interactions between physicians and their patients. In that time he developed a passion for identifying the most important elements to producing a successful medical interaction. After realizing that medical communication is an essential but incomplete component of health, he decided to pursue a master's degree in nutrition and food science. Now in the final stages of that degree, he has a broader perspective on what other elements (i.e., balanced nutrition) are necessary for optimal health and well-being.
Matthew has been a lifelong believer in the benefits of healthy eating and balanced nutrition. An avid gardener for the past 10 years, he has experienced first-hand the tangible benefits borne out of consistently consuming nutrient-dense foods.
One of Matthew's greatest interests is in translating what can be contradictory and technical nutritional information into practical and simple tips that every consumer can directly apply to their lives.
