Dr. Regan Stegman: Hi, I’m Dr. Regan Stegman, vice president of medical affairs for Owaves and I’m super excited to be joining the Body Clock Podcast team with three tremendous co-hosts Ryan Haroon and Sohaib. I’m excited to join because we get to bring together and synergize the breadth of experience between four professionals who’ve had very different careers but who think the same in a variety of ways.
And we get to showcase not only the medical aspects but science, technology, and digital health side of human performance optimization. So a little bit about me. I’m a Denver native. I went to medical school at Rocky Vista University in Parker Colorado where I commissioned into the United States Air Force. I did my internship year at Midtown Medical Center in Columbus Georgia. I then promptly started a active duty preventive medicine residency at Walter Reed and the Uniformed Services University just outside of Washington D.C.
After graduating from residency, I promptly became a flight surgeon where I currently work as a active duty Air Force doc at the Air Force Academy. I get to practice not only primary care but also aerospace medicine, my absolute favorite lifestyle medicine and performance medicine. I got involved initially quite young for performance, preventive, and lifestyle medicine where I joined national leadership positions for both the American College of Preventive Medicine and the National College the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
I got involved because once I started to see the actual scope of medical practice in this country and how basically we practice medicine in this country surrounding the idea of disease management not health management, I knew that it was my duty to bring performance optimization and health focus to not only my patients but also my colleagues, my family, and my friends. So that’s what I’m looking forward to sharing with everybody who tunes into our Body Clock Podcast. We’re here to bring you the most up to date, fully research, evidence based medical science that we can so that you can be your best self. Stay tuned and we look forward to discussing more fantastic science on the Body Clock Podcast.
