Staying Young while Getting Old

With “anti-ageing”, “preventative medicine” and “wellness” fast becoming key buzz words in personal health care and performance, this talk provides both an entertaining and intellectual perspective aimed at encouraging the listener to evaluate their current state of health & wellbeing from a holistic perspective. This talk describes the aging process and how it affects each of us. It evaluates which risk-factors to watch out for at each stage of life and details which evidence based strategies are effective in the anti-ageing and preventative medicine realm. Dr Derman motivates the listener to take control of their lives and adopt the “5 step plan” for life quality and longevity. Dr Derman is an animal lover and will be giving some tips for our furry friends too.

Professor Wayne Derman is a renowned sports, medicine and health journalist, lecturer at Sports and Exercise Medicine at UCT and was the Chief Medical Officer for both the South African Olympic and Paralympic teams. He served as flight surgeon to cosmonaut Mark Shuttleworth during the “First African in Space” mission in Russia and recently was the expert witness in the Oscar Pistorius trial.
