It is a great honour to have Australian of the Year 2020, Dr James Muecke on the podcast. James graduated with Honours from the University of Adelaide Medical School and then went on to train as an Ophthalmologist.

Using his platform as Australian of the Year, James has focused his attention on raising awareness around the dangers of sugar, processed foods and the prevention of type 2 diabetes which is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness, ill-health and death in the world. James is seeking reform to the dietary guidelines and predatory marketing from the processed food industry in an attempt to improve the metabolic health of all Australians.
