As the premier conference for transformational healthcare leaders, this year’s event will provide abundant opportunities to learn from pioneers in the field while also earning continuing education credits.

The world is experiencing an epidemic of lifestyle-related chronic disease. Data shows that lifestyle, even more so than genes, is the primary determinant of health or disease. Unfortunately, our existing health care system emphasizes pills and procedures – which have many side effects – as the solution, enabling the management of symptoms, as opposed to identifying and eradicating the cause of disease. The time for change is now! The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) advocates for a better way, deeply rooted in science. ACLM members represent a body of physicians, clinicians, health care professionals, and organizations that promote the use of lifestyle as a therapeutic intervention to prevent, treat, and, often, even reverse chronic, degenerative disease. “Treating the cause” is ACLM’s mantra. Educating, equipping, and empowering individuals with the information and resources they need to protect their health and fight disease will greatly reduce the financial burden on families, employers, our nation and the world–all while adding years to lives and life to years.
