Biography

Dr. Mark Rowe graduated from UCD Medical School in 1991. He is among the first medical professionals globally to be certified as a Diplomate of the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine. Lifestyle Medicine is defined as an evidence-based ‘lifestyle first’ approach to prevention and treatment of chronic disease.

Mark Rowe has an unbridled desire to change the culture of ‘a pill for every ill’; instead he advocates lifestyle change as the best medicine for burnout prevention and lasting wellbeing. By incorporating his principles of self-care with his extensive medical experience, he enables lasting positive change in people and their organizations.

He founded the Waterford Health Park in Ireland which received the Global Health Improvement Award, ‘A Place to Flourish.’ As recognition of Dr. Rowe’s commitment to the built environment, he was invited into ‘Leading by Design’, and shortlisted for a prestigious Loeb Fellowship in the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University in 2016.

He has authored two books to date including ‘The Men’s Health Book: A Guide for the Irish Man’ (the royalties for which go to a cancer charity) and ‘A Prescription for Happiness: The Ten Commitments for a Happier, Healthier Life’. He also writes the GoodHealthTimes, a free quarterly newsletter with seasonal positive health messages.

As an International Keynote speaker, Mark Rowe regularly delivers events and workshops for organisations around the world. He can work with you to create a bespoke message for your people and organisation. His TEDx talk titled “The Doctor of the Future: Prescribing Lifestyle as Medicine” took place in University College Dublin.
