Prof Garry Egger: Lifestyle Medicine, Find Your Flow & Fulfil Your Life’s Purpose 

 November 19, 2022

By  Therese L'Seow

Hi everyone! Welcome to our show notes for Episode 7 of The Enlightened Pharmacist Podcast. Today, we’re going to be talking to Professor Garry Egger.

He is a Professor of Health and Human Sciences at Southern Cross University and an advisor to many corporate bodies in chronic disease prevention. He has qualifications in behavioural biology and epidemiology

I share a similar passion for preventative medicine with Prof Egger and found him when I asked my health coach trainer, Shivaun Conn, who she would recommend to interview.

 I am very excited to take a deep dive into health and wellbeing, which includes the absence of disease, but also health equity, social justice, corporate responsibility, and environmental sustainability.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • Secrets to a successful health promotion campaign
  • Professor Garry’s work in identifying 15 determinants or drivers of chronic disease
  • One simple strategy to find your flow/being in the zone so you can fulfil your life’s purpose and reconnect with your community
  • How you can rinse and repeat your “flow” through muscle memory and visualisation
  • Prof Garry’s current project on the win-win Shared Medical Appointments where GPs can multi-task and patients can participate and help each other reach health goals
