He is also a Registered Nurse and the director of a number of companies engaged in health education and research, working closely with Primary Health Networks. In the past, John has been Head of the School of Nursing and Health Practices, the Director of Post Graduate studies (which included the first ever Master’s Award in Lifestyle Medicine) and Director of Professional Development and Enterprise, at SCU. John was a founding member of the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine and has pioneered research and clinical practice in Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs), which we discuss today.
