I’m excited to share with you my recent TED x Talk which was held in University College Dublin.

Title: The Doctor of The Future : Prescribing Lifestyle As Medicine

Lessons from Healthcare including the ‘pill for every ill’ & possibilities for healthcare in the future, learning from adversity & overcoming burnout & the importance of self care. Dr Mark Rowe graduated from UCD School of Medicine in 1991 and established his family practice at the Waterford Health Park. The building was subsequently shortlisted as a finalist for World Building of the Year at the World Architecture Festival Awards in 2010. In 2013, the Waterford Health Park received the ‘A Place to Flourish’, Global Health Improvement Award. Dr Rowe’s commitment to the built environment, was recognised when he was shortlisted for a prestigious Loeb Fellowship in the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University in 2016. Dr Rowe has an unbridled desire to change the culture of ‘a pill for every ill’. Instead he encourages people to become active participants and leaders in their own wellbeing. He was appointed to the inaugural Healthy Ireland Council in 2014 and is also a member of ‘Leading by Design’. He is the author of two books, ‘A Prescription for Happiness’ and ‘The Men’s Health Book’.
