My Background & Passions

Your wellbeing is the most important thing you have.  My passion is empowering you to take charge of your own health through easy to understand steps enabling you to live well for longer.

Dr Joe’s DIY Health is founded on the principle that your health is directly influenced by how you live your life. The decisions you make each day about what you put into your body, how active you are, how much rest and relaxation you get and how you deal with stress impact on your health, vitality and wellbeing.

I am an author, keynote speaker, general practitioner and health industry consultant. Previously holding senior positions in the Australian Medical Association and sitting on numerous industry and government boards I have seen the health system from all angles. Add to this extensive corporate experience in the setting up and management of medical centres.

My media activities include having a weekly health segment on Perth Channel 9 morning news and nationally on the Today Show. For ten years I was the Night-line doctor and am now on Perth Tonight with Chris Ilsley.

In addition to this are regular guest radio spots and being on the advisory panel for Prevention Magazine. I have written for newspapers and news websites nationally.

Many of my articles are reproduced on other websites and I am routinely sought for comment on health matters.

I am also a health ambassador for locally grown Fresh Potatoes.
