She is pleased to be joining The Cancer Coach.

Founder and CEO Luke Watts is excited that Dr. Steele is joining the team and praises her accomplishments. “Dr. Steele is an excellent addition to the team. Her credentials are impeccable and her multidisciplinary approach, using lifestyle medicine, behaviour change, and mind-body approaches, fits into our vision for a better solution for cancer care. ”

The Cancer Coach and its international team of experts are thought leaders in long-term cancer care, integrating medical interventions with lifestyle protocols, behaviour change, and community support. Its network of certified health coaches deploys online and in-person cancer wellness and coaching programmes to individuals, medical facilities, insurance providers, and workplace wellness providers.

The Cancer Coach’s primary aim is to support, inspire, and empower others to take a more active role in their health and wellness. To further this goal, The Cancer Coach has several key initiatives planned for 2023. In January, the organisation will launch a new online on-demand anticancer lifestyle programme, Tree of Life. In June, it plans to release Re-Mission, its integrated wearable and AI service, in collaboration with Queen Mary University.

Coaching, community, personalised care, and digital health will be the model for lasting change in people’s health, and The Cancer Coach will play a leading role in the future, says Founder Watts.
