Dr. Duncan Carmichael

Medical Director, Expand Health

Dr. Carmichael left the world of illness long ago to focus his efforts on his passion for wellness. He strongly believes that responding to a disease is much less potent than empowering someone to understand their health and prevent the diseases from occurring.

‘At Expand Health, our purpose is to show you how you can live a healthier, longer and happier life.’

He founded and runs the Institute of Healthy Aging in Cape Town, South Africa and another in Dorset in the United Kingdom. His wide range of training and clinical experience combined with his research into longevity makes him uniquely placed to develop programs to help patients live longer and healthier lives.

In 2019 Dr. Carmichael published his medical book ‘Younger for Longer’ in the UK and South Africa, and in 2020 it came out in the USA. It provides the guiding principles of how to stay healthy and active throughout our lives.
