Jeffry S. Life, MD, PhD
Dr. Jeffry Life, a board-certified, family practice physician and now a pioneer in age management medicine, is a recognized leader in the healthy aging field. He has a thriving age management medicine practice located in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dr. Life was 59 years old when he realized he looked and felt like an old man. His cholesterol scores were sky high and he was on his way to becoming a type 2 diabetic. He knew he had to make a drastic change or he had no future. His odyssey toward health began with a low-glycemic/low-fat diet and intense exercise program with a former Navy Seal. After winning the 1998 Body-for-LIFE competition in his age range, Dr. Life returned to school to master nutrition and exercise science. Twelve years later, at the age of 72, he’s as active and vibrant as ever, fully enjoying every aspect of his medical practice, and his personal life.
Now, he has turned his quest for health and fitness into a comprehensive method that can be followed with success at any age. His first book, THE LIFE PLAN: How Any Man Can Achieve Lasting Health, Great Sex, and a Stronger, Leaner Body, was published by Simon & Schuster / Atria Books in May 2011.
Dr. Life is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice and a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. After receiving his medical degree from the University of Iowa, he completed his residency in family medicine and internal medicine at West Virginia University. He holds a PhD in environmental sciences and health, and is currently working on his MBA at Auburn University. He was a part-time assistant professor at Marywood University in Pennsylvania, teaching graduate courses in nutritional science and exercise physiology throughout his early career. He lives in Las Vegas.
