Key Stakeholders United for Healthcare Transformation

As we find ourselves in the midst of a seismic shift in healthcare, transitioning from a fee-for-service to a value and outcome-based healthcare delivery model, there’s growing recognition that lifestyle medicine is the solution: it can deliver exceptional value and dramatically improved outcomes.

ACLM is convening individuals and organizations recognized as members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine’s Corporate Roundtable. These foresighted leaders understand what’s at stake if we fail to unite and take action.

Our collective vision: Sustainable human health, a sustainable healthcare system, and a sustainable world.
