Melissa Marshall Vine 1992 Global Fellow


Melissa Marshall Vine has an incredible passion for Maternal and Child Health, and has worked in the trenches for the under-served in the United States throughout her career. Melissa’s patients are vulnerable, and include the uninsured and new refugees from war-torn countries with poor health literacy. As she has advanced in her career, she has become more involved in her role as a change agent on a broader scale, where resources are limited and the solutions must be more creative. Currently, she is working with local leaders to improve Maternal and Child Health outcomes in her community through her role as the Associate Medical Director at Family Care Health Centers, and through board work at the Maternal Child Family Health Coalition. Melissa has also been tirelessly working to improve maternal and infant mortality in Nepal through the development of a rural hospital in the Manang District.
