CV of editor-in-chief

Krystyna Knypl was born in Podlasie, eastern Poland. She grew up and graduate of Medical University in Warsaw. She received her PhD in cardiology and specialized in internal diseases and hypertensiology (science about high blood pressure).

Krystyna was awarded the medal of the regional medical chamber in Warsaw. As an expert of the European Society of Hypertension she is a passionate advocate of healthy lifestyle. In 2014, in recognition of her success Krystyna received the World Hypertension League Award for Notable Achievement in Dietary Salt Reduction at thePopulation Level.

After many years of medical practice Krystyna felt more and more that she can create larger written forms than typical instructions for her patients that they should take their tablets three times a day. She decided to follow such famous predecessors as Arthur Conan Doyle or Mikhail Bulgakov and emigrate from the land of medicine to literature and journalism. This step resulted in more than 600 articles and 14 books written by Krystyna.

She has travelled around Europe and the Americas,  also visited Asia, Africa and Australia. Krystyna’s last book entitled “Gorączka złota” is illustrated with her photos taken in Algeria. She is planning to take a trip around the world. Being a supporter of the third time lucky principle – after many years of a love affair with medicine and writing she decided to take up photography. Her passion started out photographing her loved ones and after a few years she decided to also pursue other topics such as everyday life in Poland, travels, nature and medical conferences worldwide.

In 2007 she started to publish photos as @mimax2 on www.photoblog.com. During the last 10 years she has published more than 3700 posts comprising up to 20 photos. Her photos were selected 5 times for the front page of www.photoblog.com. Since 2012 Krystyna Knypl has been the editor-in-chief of “Gazeta dla Lekarzy”magazine where many articles are illustrated with her photos. Also other Polish medical media published Krystyna’s shots.
