I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

  1. Just listened to your talk with Brian. It was brilliant! I just love the NZ humour meeting the American standard English. However, the serious message you send is staggering. To hear the funding you have lost, and the hardship you face through ‘bullying’ and no doubt both subtle and not so subtle pressure must be immense. On the positive side, it must be unbelievably satisfying to see your hard work finally gaining some traction. This is noticeable anecdotally from those around me now, so much more than even two years ago. I love both your books and, I am sure, I am now one of many who greatly appreciate all that you and your team are doing.

  2. Grant this is excellent stuff. As a fellow kiwi, I really love the dedication you are making to all of this. I have only just discovered this and purchased your What the Fat? book a few days ago. I and T1D and already after 5 days my blood glucose is stable, after never being stable before. Down to less than 1 unit of meal insulin a day, and cut 2 units off my long acting. Feeling good.
