Dean Ornish is the founder and president of the non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. He is the author of 6 books, all national bestsellers. Dr. Ornish was appointed by President Clinton to the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy and by President Obama to the White House Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health.  He is also a member of The Lancet Oncology “Moonshot Commission.”  He chaired the Google Health Advisory Council 2007-9 with Marissa Mayer. Dr. Ornish was the first to prove that comprehensive lifestyle changes can reverse the progression of coronary heart disease, early-stage prostate cancer, and other chronic conditions.  He also found that changing lifestyle affects your genes—turning on protective genes and turning off genes that promote heart disease, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. He also directed the first controlled study showing that these lifestyle changes may begin to reverse cellular aging by lengthening telomeres, the ends of our chromosomes which control aging. As the founder, his “Ornish diet” has been rated “#1 for Heart Health” by U.S. News & World Report every year since 2011. He has received several awards, including the 1994 Outstanding Young Alumnus Award from the University of Texas, Austin; the University of California, Berkeley, “National Public Health Hero” award; the Jan J. Kellermann Memorial Award for distinguished contribution in the field of cardiovascular disease prevention from the International Academy of Cardiology; a Presidential Citation from the American Psychological Association; the inaugural “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine; the Beckmann Medal from the German Society for Prevention and Rehabilitation of Cardiovascular Diseases; a U.S. Surgeon General Citation; and others.  Dr. Ornish was honored as “one of the 125 most extraordinary University of Texas alumni”, chosen by LIFE magazine as “one of the fifty most influential members of his generation” and recognized by Forbes magazine as “one of the world’s seven most powerful teachers.”
