About Dr Cam…
Dr Cam McDonald PhD is an Accredited Practising Dietitian, Exercise Scientist and Personalised Health Advisor who creates healthy, focused individuals and dynamic productive teams.
In short, his mission is to make health, and the choices that create health, easy and obvious.
Combining world-leading health technology and high-level clinical experience and support, Cam tailors personalised, science-based health programs for teams and individuals in leadership and executive roles. Importantly, he helps individuals to understand and use their uniqueness (their genetics) and natural strengths to achieve their full potential.
Focusing on nutrition, exercise and environment, and applying his considerable expertise in brain function and behavioural change, Cam optimises outcomes through support and accountable care structures that ensure health goals and milestones are reached.
He helps clients, particularly those working under prolonged duress or in stressful environments, to maintain focus, sustain productivity, be happy and achieve their best health.
Cam regularly works with HR leaders in business and corporate environments. He designs and implements health and wellness programs capable of causing cultural shifts that deliver outcomes both for individuals, and organisations as a whole.
Dr Cam regularly achieves vastly improved workplace outcomes. Among them improved productivity that stems from allocating tasks in consideration of different brain types, which also results in greater cooperation, empathy and satisfaction among team members.
His role includes designing and implementing wellness programs for middle management and support staff, keynote speaking and workshops. Cam’s presentations educate and inspire leaders and their teams to maximise their individual and group performance through good health.
Outcomes include healthier and happier individuals, more energised workplaces, improved productivity, reduced sick leave, increased staff retention and positivity towards the organisation that is perceived as caring and committed to the overall health and wellbeing of its teams.
Since 2011, Cam has focused his attention on communicating how an individual’s genetics influence health outcomes. His personalised health coaching approach has successfully broken down the common barriers to success.
These include providing solutions for maintaining motivation and engagement regardless of mindset and behaviours. Cam’s personalised health programs are logical and accountable. Science-based, they remove the guesswork to reassure clients they are doing the right things for their individual body. Importantly, Cam’s programs are easy to implement and professionally supported.
In 2013, Cam pioneered the implementation of ph360.me, the world’s most advanced personalised health technology platform. He has personally advised more individuals and corporate groups on personalised health using this technology than any other practitioner in the southern hemisphere.
Further, since 2015 he has personally trained over 300 health professionals including GPs, allied health practitioners and personal trainers in personalised health delivery, the role of genetics and environments and how re-balancing them enhances performance.
Recognising the uniqueness of every individual, he believes that personalised health is the positive difference capable of preventing and reversing chronic disease.
Cam is poised to become the leading personalised health program provider for corporates in Australia by 2023.
Cam applies the health principles he passionately shares with others to his own life. He is focused on his health, believes he can be fitter and stronger each day and trains regularly. Cam’s early life was in Gundagai. His father was the town dentist and his mum a counsellor who made it her mission to bring gifted health and wellness professionals to the small town to help individuals in need. Clearly the apple didn’t fall far from the tree as Cam embraced his parents’ values of health and wellbeing.
Cam completed his schooling in Sydney, graduating from Knox Grammar as a senior boarder before studying exercise physiology at UNSW. Later he moved to Brisbane to study dietetics and nutrition, and completed his PhD at UQ in post-cancer lifestyle change. Cam would like to be remembered for inspiring others to reach their potential through understanding themselves and others.BACK
