Dr Renae Thomas

International Advisor (USA)

Dr Renae Thomas (B-BMed, MBBS hons, MD) first became interested in the power of lifestyle choices before she even started school, while observing her father incorporate health-promoting changes (and heal!) shortly after he was diagnosed with metastatic cancer. She continues to have a passion for nutrition, physical activity, social connections and stress reduction, and how these influence disease prevention, often reversal, as well as ongoing maintenance of health. Renae recently migrated from Australia to Loma Linda, California – one of the world's Blue Zones.

Dr Thomas is currently a senior resident in Loma Linda University Health’s Family and Preventive Medicine residency combined program, which includes a Lifestyle Medicine track, and a masters in Public Health (Population Medicine). She completed an internship at True North Health Centre in 2016, is a published co-author on vegetarianism and cancer with lead Adventist Health research Dr Michael Orlich, President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine Trainees, on the lifestyle track committee for the American College of Preventive Medicine, a PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) spokesperson, McDougall Starch Solution and Dietary Therapy graduate and a qualified yoga teacher.
