Keynote speaker Dr. Richard Visser, Ph.D. is a leading expert in the fields of (virtual) health, lifestyle medicine, and childhood obesity. With unparallelled experience in both research and practice, his passion for the subject engages audiences of all ages and incites them to positive action.

Dr. Richard Visser is one of the world’s leading experts on overweight, obesity, and related health issues. He holds a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences, a Master in Public Health, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic as well as numerous post-degrees, including a Diplomate in Nutrition, Diplomate in Eastern Medicine, and a Diplomate in Neuromuscular Therapy and Acupuncture. Dr. Richard Visser’s passion for nutrition and health began when he watched his father die of obesity-related causes and vowed that he would never let the same thing happen to his children. Today he is a recognized expert in the field of childhood obesity, having researched the problem on numerous fronts for more than fifteen years.

From 1997-2006, he was Director of the Visser Wellness and Research Center and in the years 2000-2005 he was the Medical Director for the Aruba Olympic Committee. In 2005 he founded the Richard Visser Institute, a nonprofit foundation which provided a platform for governments and Institutions of Latin America and the Greater Caribbean Region to help improve the wellbeing of their people and their country through programs, education, training and research with top scientists. In the years 2007-2013 he was the Minister of Healthcare and Sports for Aruba, and created the Institute for Healthy Living (IBiSA), which works towards prevention of non-communicable diseases. From 2011 to 2013 he served on the Executive Board of the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA). He led the PAHO/WHO Pan American Health Organization in their efforts to fight the Obesity crises in the Americas, through the creation of the largest stakeholder events PACO 1, 2, and 3.

Through the years Dr. Richard Visser has collaborated on numerous training and research projects with other health industry notables and experts from many alternative medicine specialties, including Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. John Gray, and His Holiness Grand Master Lin Yun of Blacksect Buddhism. In 2014, Dr. Richard Visser founded Vera Health Group, which converges new technologies to create new and innovative models of healthcare. His work has made a vital contribution to a greater understanding of the biological, sociological and psychological factors surrounding childhood obesity. This understanding has led to the development of “Sailing Toward Health,” an innovative intervention plan, including a unique learning tool in the form of an engaging computer game designed to teach parents, children and teachers how to develop a healthy, active lifestyle they will enjoy.

In 2011, he spoke at the United Nations in New York on behalf of the Netherlands to explain “The Aruba’s Call to Action of Obesity,” which was subsequently signed by 22 countries. In 2008 the Los Angeles City Council recognized his contribution and dedication to the Research and Study of Chilhood Obesity, and in 2012, he was rewarded an Honor Medal by the International School Sport Federation as well as the World Science Award by Council University Academics. Dr. Richard Visser is currently busy redefining care delivery systems around the World, through Cloud based Virtual Clinics and Hospitals creating never before seen access to quality care.
