What was this event about?
Our Lifestyle Medicine Conference, The Future of Healthcare is Lifestyle Medicine, was about bringing this new and exciting topic into mainstream Primary Care.
We combined a fun and inspirational day of CPD with networking, exercise snacks, wholesome food and the most eminent and internationally renowned speakers in their fields. The aim was to make a difference in the tsunami of chronic disease we are now facing.
What is Lifestyle Medicine?
"Lifestyle medicine is a branch of evidence-based medicine in which comprehensive lifestyle changes (including nutrition, physical activity, stress management, social support and environmental exposures) are used to prevent, treat and reverse the progression of chronic diseases by addressing their underlying causes. LM is an adjunct form of treatment that helps to bridge the best aspects of public health and conventional clinical medicine".
