Chair & CEO of Medcan Shaun Francis shares his ideas on the future of healthcare, and strategies for Canadians to stay healthy. As founder of True Patriot Love, a charity benefiting Canada's Veterans, soldiers and military families, he discusses why Veterans matter and why they deserve more support.

Chatter that Matters host Tony Chapman begins every episode with a personal story, sharing why his guest matters. In this episode, Tony talks about his own health and mortality, and his desire to live long and healthy to pursue all he is passionate about.

To find out how he can chase the “fountain of youth,” he invites Shaun Francis, the Chair and CEO of Medcan, and world-renowned preventive medicine expert, to talk about longevity, mental and physical wellness, the future of healthcare, and the well-being of Canada’s military members, Veterans and their families.

Shaun is also the author of the national bestseller Eat, Move, Think: The Path to a Healthier, Stronger, Happier You and has made it his life’s mission to improve the well-being of others. Shaun shares his experiences as a Canadian who attended the United States Naval Academy, and chats about the lessons he learned about building resilience, and how pushing his own limits in intellectual and physical pursuits has allowed him to realize potential he didn’t feel he had.

His experience with the military bore an understanding of the sacrifices our soldiers and their families have to make, and the traumas that may come with battle duty. This motivated Shaun to found True Patriot Love in Canada, which provides critical support to people in the military, Veterans and their families. To raise awareness and funds, he has co-led several expeditions with injured Veterans and soldiers, as well as civilians, to the far corners of the globe.

As the Chair and CEO of the world-renowned Medcan clinic, he offers his perspectives on the future of our healthcare system and the role both technology and the private sector must play to stay in step with ageing populations.

Finally, don’t miss the invaluable tips he shares on how to follow a path towards being healthier, stronger and happier.

Tony Chapman created the Chatter That Matters podcast to counter the storm of negativity and impossibility with true stories of ordinary people who do extraordinary things. He chats with Olympians, Advocates, Celebrities, Leaders and people who battled what seemed like insurmountable odds.

In doing so, listeners hear life lessons that inspire all of us to do more and to be more, and to help us get to where we need, want and deserve to go. RBC is the presenting sponsor.
