Join pioneering researchers, clinicians, and policy-makers at Lifestyle Medicine 2020

Lifestyle Medicine 2020 is the fifth international conference brought to you by the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM) and partner organisations and will draw on the expertise of leading researchers, clinicians, and policy-makers to innovate clinical practice, inspire health policy, stimulate meaningful conversation, and ultimately enhance a global movement.

Over 700 delegates ranging from medical doctors and allied health practitioners, through to clinical educators, researchers, service delivery personnel, and health policy professionals are expected to converge in Melbourne 15-17 May to explore the key themes of cognition; inflammation; and cardiometabolic conditions.

The conference features a ‘how to’ interdisciplinary clinical focus blended with an exploration of the social and environmental determinants of health, exploring the full range of Lifestyle Medicine domains.

The movement for change in healthcare

Chronic and lifestyle-related conditions are a substantial global, national and individual health issue. Despite continued efforts, countless lives are being lost prematurely and quality of life is being eroded. Without reform, health systems around the world are predicted to be unsustainable by 2050.

This year’s theme acknowledges that Lifestyle Medicine forms an important part of the solution to the current chronic and lifestyle-related disease epidemic. Bridging the gap between health promotion and clinical practice, it is an evidence-based, interdisciplinary approach to healthcare that equips health practitioners to address the behavioural, social and environmental drivers of disease. It is both a discipline and a movement for change, transforming the management, treatment, and prevention of these conditions worldwide.

Lifestyle Medicine promotes prevention, early intervention, self‐management, modification, and dare we say it, even reversal of some chronic conditions. Explore the latest translational research and clinical application at Lifestyle Medicine 2020.
