Dr. Lee Rice is the CEO and Medical Director of Lifewellness Institute, a pioneer in the field of wellness and preventive medicine.
With more than twenty-five years’ experience as a family physician, he has become one of the premier medical experts on wellness in the United States. In 2001, he founded the Lifewellness Institute, a revolutionary healthcare facility focusing on health promotion.
Lee believes there are three areas that determine our health outcomes in life: genetics, behaviour and mind-set. He also knows that people die prematurely because of their health related choices. Fascinatingly, science can now prove that DNA is not our destiny and we can all make healthier lifestyle choices to affect our health and performance in the long-term.
