John Morley, M.D.

Morley is witty and explains science in an understandable way. Internationally respected as a scientist and clinician, he is frequently featured as a speaker at national and international symposiums.

Morley takes a common-sense approach to helping his patients remain vital and vibrant, advocating against therapeutic diets and for a glass of wine and plenty of time with loved ones each day. Morley also has created a self-diagnostic questionnaire for older men to help them figure out if their sagging sex drive and general grumpiness might be symptoms of a problem that could be helped by testosterone replacement therapy.

Morley is the recipient of multiple national awards for his leadership in geriatrics, including the James Pattee Award for Excellence in Education, and is listed in the International Who’s Who in Medicine for his research on obesity.

Morley is a SLUCare physician, the Dammert Professor of Gerontology and director of the division of geriatric medicine and acting director of the division of endocrinology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. He is the coauthor of the book, The Science of Staying Young.
