    Building a better health future for all Australians

    Duration: 0:30 | Size: 36.76 MB

    Medibank is proud to partner with SBS for a new three-part series featuring Dr Michael Mosley exclusively for SBS On Demand audiences.

    Dr Michael Mosley’s Reset, launching on 4th March, will explore practical ways we can improve our health and quality of life.

    Statistics from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) show more than half of all Australians suffer from chronic health conditions, which is a major cause of death.

    High profile doctor and science journalist, Dr Michael Mosley, speaks to leading experts across psychology, nutrition and gastroenterology about a range of the most common preventable health conditions that affect Australians today.

    Dr Mosley and his expert panelists will look at why depression, anxiety, obesity, diabetes and gut health issues are so common in Australia, the life factors that contribute to these and a range of preventative measures that can be taken in the fight against preventable chronic disease.

    The three episodes, Better Bodies, Better Minds and Better Guts, will address these health questions and look at the practical steps that can be taken in the fight against preventable chronic disease.

    Medibank Chief Customer Officer David Koczkar says this series is about giving Australians practical steps to improve their health.

    “We are working hard with our customers to understand their health needs and those of the broader Australian community.

    “We are proud to have partnered with SBS to create a series that’s about building better health for better lives.” Mr Koczkar said.

    Dr Mosley said recent scientific studies have shown that the symptoms of chronic diseases like diabetes as well as mental and gut health issues can be reduced, and in some cases even reversed by lifestyle and dietary changes.

    “With so much conflicting advice out there, I want to help the audiences cut through the information overload to make good choices now, to ensure a better life for the future,” Dr Mosley said.

    *All three episodes of Dr Michael Mosley’s Reset will be available on SBS On Demand from Monday, 4 March 2019.
