A vast majority of chronic disease, when directly related to poor lifestyle choices, is reversible and preventable through the proper choices in nutrition, exercise, and stress management. The growing field of lifestyle medicine—an essential foundation for the prevention and treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases and other chronic medical conditions—makes available the necessary evidence-based solutions for providers to counsel patients and improve patient outcomes.

The Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) of Asheville, North Carolina, in collaboration with Dr. Brian Asbill, is providing the following two excellent educational options:
• a symposium for healthcare providers only and
• a workshop for community members and anyone interested in adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Each training will address Lifestyle Medicine within Buncombe County and Western North Carolina. The purpose of this program is to connect healthcare providers, city and government officials, and community members with the knowledge and tools to practice healthy lifestyles and to engage patients in the necessary solutions for improved patient outcomes.
