Presentation Title: The Longevity Paradox: Why do women live longer but in worse health?

Dr Kate Gregorevic is a geriatrician and internal medicine physician. She works in both acute hospital medicine and community settings. She has also completed a PhD looking at the impact of positive psychosocial factors in the development of frailty in older adults.

Lifestyle medicine is a core feature of Kate’s clinical practice, and nutrition, exercise and sleep are integral to developing plans to optimise her patients’ health. Her approach goes beyond physical, to working with people to identify their own priorities and values and always centering these in any management plans.

Kate feels that it is incredibly important to provide accurate lifestyle strategies for health to as many people as possible, and has been heard and seen widely on radio and TV. Kate is also a regular contributor to The Age/Sydney Morning Herald. Kate has written a book, Staying alive: The science of living happier, healthier and longer.

Kate is also the director of Project Three Six Twelve, an online wellbeing and exercise program, giving women over 40 the tools they need to improve strength and vitality.

Kate lives in Melbourne with her husband and three children.
