Memorandum of Agreement with the Lifestyle Medicine Institute
In 2014 Avondale signed a MOA with the Lifestyle Medicine Institute (a company of Sanitarium Health and Wellbeing) which is responsible for the international development and dissemination of the premier Lifestyle Medicine intervention called the Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP). The agreement secured the Lifestyle Research Centre at Avondale as the lead research unit for all research relating to the CHIP internationally. This MOA came about largely as a result of the contribution I made to the development of the CHIP lifestyle intervention throughout 2010-11. Darren is one of the two main presenters in the CHIP lifestyle intervention which now operates in over 10 countries around the world.
