The Associate Professor Matthew Leach Session
In this Session, A/Prof Matthew Leach discusses how he married holistic philosophies of health with scientific rigor, how he ‘beefed up’ his PhD following the challenge of recruitment and a disappointingly small sample size, and how passion inspires motivation to get the end of what is often a very long process.
I realised something was missing (and that was what drew me to nursing) and that is scientific evidence base behind that. And so, I thought my mission then was to look at building an evidence-base for naturopathic medicine.
