Motivating lifestyle change is critical in preventing and treating chronic diseases, like diabetes.” said Humana Chief Medical Officer, Kate Goodrich, MD, MHS. “Our partnership with the ACLM will ensure our clinicians receive evidence-based lifestyle change and behavioral motivation training to treat chronic disease more effectively.”
The commitment from ACLM, which is covered in detail here, has generated substantial engagement from organizations interested in taking part in the training and helping ACLM to achieve its training goal.
