Who are we?
World of Wellness started in 2022, after Australians endured two years of the longest lockdowns in the world. We now have a committee of dedicated people who have worked in the health sector, or who are passionate about health reform, safety standards and accountability.
Our team includes health practitioners and health entrepreneurs from a wide range of backgrounds.
