- BSLM Director, Undergraduate Lifestyle Medicine Society
Rory is a final year medical student at King’s College London, UK. He chose to study medicine to better understand the physiological processes that define optimal health. When we understand optimal, we can identify the aberrant pathways that lead to disease.
Rory hopes to use this method of thinking to identify simple interventions that can both optimise health and prevent disease. As we uncover further the effects of the relationship between our genes and our environment upon health, we see that many factors defining health are controllable with ‘lifestyle medicine’.
As a student, Rory joined the society to better understand the real-world application of lifestyle medicine, discover new resources and meet established clinicians. He hopes to increase the undergraduate presence within BSLM by connecting students with clinicians at seminars and events.
