Dr Joe attended an international conference in 2003 that would inspire him to take an active approach to health. Instead of waiting to assist people when they got sick, Dr Joe decided to explore what could be done to keep people consistently healthy.
Shortly after, Dr Joe would begin his writing career by building a website and blog for health and lifestyle issues. With a weekly newsletter and a significant following on social media, Dr Joe continues to spread insightful information about staying healthy to Australians online.
