THE “I AM ACLM” CAMPAIGN

The “I AM ACLM” Campaign is a showcase of diverse disciplines, personalities, and passions to promote membership and lifestyle medicine. ACLM members matter and are united in our efforts to eradicate chronic disease and transform health care as we know it today! We launched the #IamACLM campaign in June 2022 to increase the understanding of the therapeutic modalities of lifestyle medicine to help eradicate chronic disease. This campaign celebrates the face of our membership and how ACLM supports their scope of work.

Lifestyle medicine can address up to 80% of chronic diseases. A lifestyle medicine approach to population care has the potential to arrest the decades-long rise in the prevalence of chronic conditions and their burdensome costs.  Patient and provider satisfaction often results from a lifestyle medicine approach, which strongly aligns the field with the Quintuple Aim of better health outcomes, lower cost, improved patient satisfaction, improved provider well-being, and advancement of health equity, in addition to its alignment with planetary health. Lifestyle medicine is the foundation for a redesigned, value-based and equitable healthcare delivery system, leading to whole person health.

VALUE PROPOSITION FOR ACLM

As the nation’s only medical professional association representing the interdisciplinary field of lifestyle medicine, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine represents a galvanized force for change; members are united in their dedication to identifying and eradicating the root causes of chronic disease, with the clinical outcome goal of health restoration.  ACLM closes the gap in evidence-based education in lifestyle medicine across the spectrum of pre- and post-professional training. Along with the training and support of its members in their individual practices, ACLM advocates lifestyle medicine as the first and optimal whole-person treatment option for all people, mitigating much of the non-communicable, chronic disease epidemic.
