What the Fat? Prof Grant Schofield joins the CoroVibes speaker line up
We're rapt to announce we are going to have one of New Zealand's pre-eminent experts on preventative health speaking at CoroVibes.
Prof Grant Schofield is Professor of Public Health, and Director of the Human Potential Centre at AUT Millennium. His research and teaching interests range from understanding and improving lifestyle behaviours such as sleep, nutrition, and physical activity, to wellbeing epidemiology and human performance. He maintains a multi fluency across psychology, physiology, public health, epidemiology, and human performance.
Professor Schofield takes a "think outside the box" approach to his work in tackling the big health problems of our times. He is known for "challenging current beliefs" in his field. His current project base and large group of talented postgraduate thesis students show an exciting range of these challenges.
Grant is also the co-founder of PreKure, a social enterprise that exists to inspire the medical profession to become more focused on disease prevention, and co-author of a number of books on nutritional wellbeing such as What The Fat?, and “What the Fast”
Grant will be speaking and joining panel discussions on low carb, healthy fat keto diets, Preventative health as Medicine, Food as Medicine and The Healing Power of Sleep.
Grant and his wife Louise are an active part of the Tairua community, and are looking forward to playing a part in bringing you this awesome event celebrating Wellbeing.
