Event Overview
Welcome message:

This immersive two-day course offers state-of-the-art strategies to guide patients to healthier lives. Education includes evidence-based strategies, tools and techniques to effect healthier changes in patients (and ourselves), including nutrition, exercise, sleep, weight loss, and stress management. This course also provides updates on payment structures that reward clinicians based upon patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes.


Past participants report a renewed passion for practicing medicine and reduced personal stress as they themselves learn to enhance their own health and to serve as role models for their patients.


Overview

Our daily work as healthcare professionals increasingly involves caring for patients with diseases that are ultimately caused by or exacerbated by poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, inadequate sleep, and smoking. Yet professional training does not sufficiently prepare us to leverage our position of trust to help patients initiate health-promoting behaviors. At the same time, we are seeing payment structures rapidly evolve to reward clinicians based upon our patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes. These factors have given rise to an overwhelming demand for evidence-based lifestyle medicine practices that have been shown to reduce patient risk for chronic diseases. That is precisely what is offered at Lifestyle Medicine in 2019.


Reasons to Attend in 2019

Highlights of the 2019 program include:


The strategies that produce the best results for stress resiliency, sleep quality, nutrition, and weight-loss counseling

Guidance to prescribe exercise and perform risk assessments

Health coaching (it’s not “eat less; exercise more”)

Clinician self-care: what it is and why it matters

What really gets patients (even reluctant ones) to make healthy changes

Leveraging lifestyle medicine to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, dementia, certain cancers, and sexual health issues

When, why, and how to incorporate lifestyle medicine for underserved populations

Skills Advancement and Networking

Recognized experts in the fields of lifestyle medicine, behavior change, health coaching, exercise, stress management, and nutrition provide guidance and innovations for:


Incorporating lifestyle medicine into your current practice

Improving patient communication and motivational interviewing

Building an effective lifestyle medicine team

Engaging resistant patients

Safely and effectively prescribing exercise or increased physical activity

Persuasively approaching nutrition counseling

Efficiently navigating the changing insurance landscape
