Malgorzata (Gosia) Trubshaw was born in Warsaw, Poland but has lived in England since 1989. Having graduated as a doctor from St George’s Hospital Medical School, University of London in 1995, she now works as a General Practitioner but additionally has developed a passionate interest and expertise in neurology. For over fifteen years she has been practicing as a Neurology Specialist in the field of Epilepsy and Headaches, working in various hospitals and community clinics in London and Surrey and collaborating with local Clinical Commissioning Groups in designing plans for improvement of local community neurology care.

Malgorzata has always identified strongly with her Polish background and cultural heritage and was a co-founder of a successful and vibrant volunteer run library at the largest Polish School in London under the name of Marii Sklodowskiej-Curie.

Throughout her life, she has travelled to the furthest parts of the world admiring the versatility of cultures and the beauty of nature, at the same time finding inequality around every corner. Her dream is to help people to live with dignity regardless of birthplace and believes that no matter how impossible a task appears, full and committed application of determination and effort will allow it to be achieved. Malgorzata also believes that even one person can make a significant difference to the world’s future: the MEDyARTE foundation was born out of this belief.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away
