The American College of Lifestyle Medicine heard from its members their desire to have opportunities to participate in more intimate, member-only opportunities.

Partnering with ACLM Member Henry Villegas, MD, proprietor of the GreenLagoon Wellbeing Resort in beautiful La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica, ACLM is pleased to announce the inaugural ‘Physician Heal Thyself’ member-only retreat opportunity with CE Credits available.

Why ‘Physician Heal Thyself’? We must become champions and role models for our patients, learning the proven lifestyle medicine approaches for our own personal health that we, in turn, can impart to our patients.
