DrKateGregorevic

I am a doctor who wants to help you achieve longevity by finding ways to improve your wellbeing today, and I believe that it is never too late or early to make changes to enjoy better health.

I completed a medical degree at the University of Melbourne, graduating with honours, and have completed specialist training through the Royal Australasian College of Physicians with a focus on geriatric medicine. I founded ElderHealth Australia to provide specialist clinical services to older Australians, and more recently founded Project Three Six Twelve, an online provider of exercise programs designed for the health and well-being of women in their 40s and beyond. I currently work at a hospital in Melbourne, and also participate in teaching medical students and physician trainees.

I feel incredibly lucky to live in Australia, a country with one of the highest life expectancies in the world and with a wonderful health system, and I believe that it is important to contribute to this by doing research. That’s why I also completed a PhD exploring health assets, which are factors that can create wellbeing and are desirable in their own right, and their interaction with frailty.

In addition to my own blog, I write for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age on multiple occasions, and have written for Mamamia, Whimn, Sixty&Me, and Over60. I’m also currently writing a book on health and longevity (COMING SOON IN 2020!), and am bookable for speaking engagements and specialist panel discussions.

@drjohnmorley Increasingly I see geriatricians as leaders in healthcare . As most Hollister patients are older adults and team based care becomes the norm, I think we will increasingly be front and centre.

If you're taking vitamin D and calcium routinely, maybe don't bother

New research busts myths about these two supplements being essential for certain groups.
