Lifestyle Medicine Symposium

There are no spots available for walk-in registrations.

About 80% of our current ~$3.4 trillion healthcare expenditure is spent on chronic diseases such as diabetes, HTN and dyslipidemia and ~80% of our chronic diseases are rooted in poor lifestyle choices. The current "pills and procedures" healthcare paradigm is simply not working, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and increased stress has stretched many healthcare providers to a breaking point. We must help each other and our patients adopt and sustain healthy lifestyle behaviors that improve health and quality of life and allow us as providers to reconnect to the true joy of practicing medicine. Come join us at the 2023 Lifestyle Medicine Symposium to learn how you can eat better, move more, stress less, and sleep better. Do it for yourself, your family and your patients!
