Board & Management

ASLM is managed by a volunteer board of doctors, allied health practitioners and public health professionals, dedicated to making a difference to the health and wellbeing of Australians and New Zealanders, and to improving our health system to better prevent, manage and treat the ‘lifestyle’-related conditions responsible for at least 70% of the burden on our society, communities and families.
