Looking back: Lifestyle Medicine 2022 conference, ‘The evolution of practice’

It goes without saying we were beyond excited to see most of you in-person in Cairns last month for our international conference, Lifestyle Medicine 2022, ‘The evolution of practice’. We’re still buzzing from the hugs, smiles, connection, and knowledge shared. The caliber of speakers and the enthusiasm of panellists, MCs, attendees, and students made this year’s conference yet another wonderful success, so a massive “thank you” to each and every one of you. 

We had conversations and presentations around, but not limited to (of course!): 

  • Lifestyle Medicine approaches in natural disaster responses 
  • Shared Medical Appointments 
  • Cultural competency in practice 
  • Greening your practice 
  • Transforming a client’s mindset for change 
  • Technologies to support the implementation of Lifestyle Medicine 
  • Applying Lifestyle Medicine to practice 

Additionally, we had a wide range of abstracts, opportunities for daily guided movement, and plenaries with Dr Joanna McMillan and Dr Darren Morton. We cannot, and will not, forget the dancing skills of the brilliant Simon Matthews. 

A huge thank you to our sponsors this year. We trust you made valuable connections at the conference, and we genuinely look forward to continuing our work with each and every one of you as we continue to share the resources, technologies, tools, and programs that will help practitioners and the public strive for a healthier, happier Australia and New Zealand.
