Our investment in health

Recently, TAL hosted a ‘Future of Better Health’ event that brought together representatives from our partners across financial advice, superannuation, and beyond.  

Aligned to our focus of helping more Australians live life through their best possible health, we held a panel discussion with leading health experts and well-known Australians with lived experience, to discuss their personal stories and what a future of better health looks like to them. We asked them to shed light on the key health innovations and, advances in understanding, which could shape a brighter and healthier future for us all. 

The panel featured two of Australia’s pre-eminent experts and authorities in their respective areas, both also members of TAL’s Specialist Medical Advisory Board:

  • Michael Boyer, Professor and Chief Clinical Officer at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, who acknowledges how understanding health and what determines it can be enormously empowering for patients, and mentions the work in progress health literacy of the Australian population. 
  • Nick Glozier, Professor of Psychological Medicine at University of Sydney, who talks about some different aspects that are important to a meaningful life

Also on the panel:

  • Libby Trickett, four time Olympian and mental health advocate, who encourages being pro-active about mental health 
  • Barry Du Bois, Designer and TV personality who talked through his own health experiences in his fight against a rare form of cancer
  • Dr Sally Phillips, TAL’s General Manager of Health Services, who mentions the importance of the physical, mental and financial wellbeing model as well as supporting customers post-claim.
