Biography

John E.

He has been the principal investigator of over 30 different studies in his research career. During that time, he either directly raised or indirectly supported raising over $23 million in grants, gifts, and contracts for research studies and clinical trials and educational programs for medical students. Much of his research has focused on evaluating the effects of nutrition, dietary supplementation, and exercise on various aspects of human health and disease.

In addition to his research, Dr. Lewis has been an invited national and international lecturer at conferences and workshops and as a guest on television shows, where he discusses the findings of his research and provides guidance and recommendations as an expert in the field of health and wellness. He has over 180 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals, where his work has first appeared in print, including some of the leading scientific journals, such as AIDS and Behavior, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, American Journal of Public Health, Journal of the International AIDS Society, Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Nutrition and Cancer: An International Journal, Sports Medicine, Stroke, The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and The Gerontologist. He has also mentored many different students, from undergraduates to post-doctoral trainees, in how to conduct clinical research and how to apply the principles of health promotion into daily practice.  His seminal publication in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease from his Alzheimer’s study, not only spurred him to leave academics and pursue a science-based business career, but also enabled him to be selected for a widely-acclaimed TEDxMiami talk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOJr0sxmxGI) about how dietary supplementation can improve brain health.

Dr. Lewis earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Tennessee in business administration and human physiology, respectively, and he has a Ph.D. from the University of Miami in educational and psychological studies.  His Medical Wellness Training Expert Specialty areas and Speaking topics include:  plant-based (vegan/vegetarian) nutrition; optimal nutrition for health, wellness, and performance; exercise programming – from weekend warriors to athletes; dietary supplementation for health and disease prevention; designing and conducting clinical research interventions; technical writing and professional publishing and presentation; and evaluation of research studies and data.  In addition to his professional accomplishments, he is a former athlete and competitive body builder, who maintains a very rigorous exercise training regimen, takes certain important dietary supplements, and has eaten a whole-food, plant-based diet for over 26 years.
