Why attend?

The overarching theme of Lifestyle Medicine 2019 is, ‘Innovation & Intervention, Environment & Equity’.

No longer can we be satisfied with treatment as usual when the science demonstrates that practitioner-led intervention and community-based programs can be highly effective, and that reversal of chronic diseases through the modification of behavioural, lifestyle and environmental factors is not only possible, but a practical reality.

Unfortunately, obesity is still on the rise with over half our population now overweight or obese, including our children, driven by overconsumption and under activity, environmental, societal and other influences. Likewise for metabolic dysfunction, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular risk factors, cognitive decline and dementia.

The solution lies in modifying those factors, ideally at the level of society and environment, and through ‘real world’ interventions and programs that operate effectively in public health, community, clinical practice and in the social context of everyday life.

Advances in lifestyle intervention and programs to achieve sustainable weight loss, blood sugar control, lower blood pressure, improve metabolic function and support mental health have provided a unique opportunity to do just that in this new age of high-tech, genomic and personalised medicine.

Lifestyle Medicine 2019 will bring these themes together with focus on health equity and the environment, innovative policy and practical intervention.

If you support a comprehensive approach to the chronic and lifestyle-related disease problem and want to be part of something bigger, join the discipline that is also an international movement for change in healthcare!
