Lifestyle Medicine Academic Resources
for Every Stage of a Health Professional Career
Over 80% of U.S. health care costs can be attributed to the treatment of chronic diseases rooted in unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. However, topics like nutrition, physical activity, or stress management are not given needed attention during health professional training. ACLM aims to alter this dynamic by equipping faculty and students with the knowledge and clinical skills to prevent, treat and reverse chronic disease through the application of lifestyle medicine.
