Concurrent sessions will be led by Lifestyle Medicine luminaries such as Drs. John Kelly, Beth Frates and many others.

“This conference is shaping up to be our largest and most comprehensive,” said ACLM President Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH, FACLM, DipABLM. “The opportunity to learn from this vast diversity of presentations and presenters, as well as the chance to network with the leaders and pioneers of the fastest growing medical specialty in the country is a unique opportunity you won’t want to miss.”

As many as 1,500 physicians and other health professionals are expected to attend the conference, ACLM’s largest ever in its 15-year history. Sessions will cover various aspects of Lifestyle Medicine, from the science and the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, to topics on Lifestyle Medicine and health disparities, women’s health, chronic pain management, provider tools, reimbursement and more. Other topics will include strategies on de-prescribing, physician burnout and resiliency, reimbursement and implementing Lifestyle Medicine in clinics, health care institutions and communities.

Lifestyle Medicine 2019 is presented by The Prospect Fund, a socially responsible investment fund which offers its resources to advance important causes globally.
