LMIG 101-How To Start an ACLM Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group | 7 Steps to Start a LMIG


Similar to every other medical specialty (family medicine, surgery, dermatology, etc.), we envision Lifestyle Medicine to occupy a similar role. We already know enough to prevent ~80% of chronic diseases and this knowledge needs to be shared! LMIGs are the perfect avenue to bring like-minded, passionate trainees together to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and learn more about how to "prescribe" Lifestyle Medicine. The Physicians in Training (PiT) team wants to make this process as seamless as possible. We want to help connect LMIGs together and enable trainees in the fields of medicine, representing a Lifestyle Medicine team approach, to share LM with one another. 


To advance the mission and message of the ACLM to all trainees, by enabling Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups to be established on every medical school and health-related services campus across the country.
