Today’s guest on the podcast: Dr. Afaf Meleis, internationally renowned nurse scientist and medical sociologist. She talks to us about some of her major life decisions and how they have enabled her to have such a large impact on the world.

Dr. Meleis’s writings and research have had an impact on advancing nursing knowledge in global health and women’s health. Much of her life’s work has been dedicated to uncovering the experiences and the voices of vulnerable women.

Afaf Meleis knew from a young age that she wanted to change and improve the world, and her journey has been driven by this throughout her life, both personally and professionally. If you are able to adopt one message from today’s podcast it should be:

Allow for serendipity in your life, so that you can take advantage of opportunities that occur.
