ACPM and ACLM
Lifestyle Medicine Core Competencies Program

This online education program provides a comprehensive introduction to lifestyle medicine, the evidence-based therapeutic approach to prevent, treat and reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases. Featured are comprehensive lifestyle interventions—involving nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sleep, social support and environmental exposures—which address underlying disease risks, thereby decreasing illness burden and improving clinical outcomes within value-based medicine. Lifestyle medicine should be seen as a core competency for preventive and primary care medicine.
