Lifestyle Medicine Endorsed

ASLM is proud to endorse activities (courses, programs, services, events, and products) that exemplify the principles of Lifestyle Medicine or promote awareness, understanding and uptake of the principles and applications of Lifestyle Medicine.

For the uninitiated, Lifestyle Medicine is much more than health behaviour.  ‘Lifestyle’ includes our society, environment, socioeconomic and other factors, and requires a multiple systems approach to the chronic and lifestyle-related disease problem.

Lifestyle Medicine addresses the cause and treats the whole person, in particular by enhancing self-empowerment and self-efficacy to manage and improve our own health, and by providing the knowledge, skills and resources to do so.

Importantly, Lifestyle Medicine encapsulates the values you probably hold as strongly as we do; improving health and wellbeing, health equity, social justice, environmental sustainability, corporate social responsibility and more. You can read more about Lifestyle Medicine here.

If you would like to support our work and be part of an energetic and passionate global movement for change, you can join as a member, make a tax deductible donation, like and share our posts on Facebook, and of course, sign up for our newsletter in the footer below.

More information on the endorsement standards framework can be found here.
