Dr Richard Yin MBBS is a GP who works in a suburban general practice in Perth. He sees health as extending beyond what happens within the consulting room and is founded on out relationships within families, communities and the natural world. The general practice he helped found embeds sustainability into how it functions, derives some of its energy from its own PV cells and has a fruit and vegetable garden at the front which offers a composting service to surrounding residents.
Richard is an active campaigner on climate change and is Honorary Secretary for Doctors for the Environment.
Outside of medicine, he conducts regular classes on mindfulness meditation, runs, and enjoys bushwalking and travelling.
