Who & Why?

The movement for change in healthcare

Much more than just an evidence-based discipline, Lifestyle Medicine is a global movement for change in health, healthcare, society, environment and our future. It relies on the collective wisdom and will of health professionals from around the globe to help advocate for and inspire tangible change.

Self-care and Lifestyle Medicine in practice

From the provision of nourishing meals, allocated movement breaks and the promotion of personal wellbeing with a dedicated self-care stream, Lifestyle Medicine 2020 encourages the personal practice of Lifestyle Medicine from start to finish and offers ample opportunity for delegates to spend time prioritising their own health and wellbeing.

Online access

To ensure our delegates don’t miss out on anything presented at Lifestyle Medicine 2020, all concurrent sessions will be filmed (subject to applicable permissions) and made available for later online viewing. This allows delegates to watch the concurrent sessions they didn’t attend in-person, and re-watch their favourite presentations.

Online access is complimentary for the days registered. Access to additional days can be purchased once available.
