I’VE so often advised patients in the pharmacy about their risk of skin cancer, and dispensed medications to those undergoing treatment for it, but as with lots of health-related matters, it’s very easy to overlook yourself!
Michelle began her healthcare career as a community pharmacist in 2012, and has since expanded into pharmacy research and education. She has just completed a PhD in the area of wellness education, publishing her findings in academic journals, and presenting at international conferences.
She has a particular passion for mental health education, and holds a Professional Diploma in the Teaching of Mindfulness-Based Interventions from the Mindfulness Centre for Professional Training in Ireland. Michelle’s weekly column shall explore a variety of physical and mental health topics, supporting WOW readers in all aspects of health and wellness development.
