About Rory

I am a fourth year medical student at King’s College London currently completing an Intercalated BSc. in Physiology.

I believe that prevention of chronic disease should be at the forefront of healthcare. The use of lifestyle and exercise as tools to reduce the burden of non-communicable disease is a topic close to my heart. I am an Ambassador for the nonprofit organisation Move Eat Treat, promoting lifestyle change to healthcare professionals. Our previous Summit was in 2015.

I am President of The London Sports and Exercise Medicine Society. Our aim is to promote SEM to the undergraduate communities in London by facilitating educational and career building opportunities. Please “Like” LSEMS on Facebook to keep up-to-date with its activities.

I currently hold the position of Secretary on the Undergraduate Sports and Exercise Medicine Society (USEMS) Committee, where I help to organise the committee’s actions and bring together our networks over the country. Via USEMS I am the first point of contact for societies needing advice – contact us at usemscommittee@gmail.com

I try to exercise often, eat the best diet I can, be mindful of stress, and sleep well. I am keen to learn more about how lifestyle interventions can be used to advance athletic performance, or to prevent disease and increase quality of life in wider populations. My current interests are in nutritional ketosis, and the health benefits of resistance training.

I enjoy reading blogs, focusing on nutrition, exercise science, “biohacks” and functional medicine. Additionally, I learn a lot by attending events from nutrition to surgery at my university and when I can afford them, conferences. Check out the events I’ve been to here: Academic Events and Interests

I would be grateful for any feedback you may have on my activities, my writing style or any ideas for future posts. I’m always looking for opportunities to learn more – please get in touch using the contact form below.
