Lifestyle Medicine student movement

Activating our future leaders

ASLM recognises that students are the future leaders of Lifestyle Medicine, and our only hope for sustainable growth. That’s why we’re working to cultivate an active community of students who are committed to advancing the Lifestyle Medicine message from the ground up.

If you are a current health student passionate about Lifestyle Medicine, see below for an outline of the ways in which you can take part in and help advance the student-lead movement for change.

Free student membership

Students at LM19

The Lifestyle Medicine movement for change involves clinicians, public health professionals, researchers, scientists and educators working together to prevent, manage, and treat chronic and lifestyle-related conditions. Students form an integral part of this community too; helping to inspire change from unique place of influence. Student membership is free to those studying towards a qualification which upon completion, would qualify them for Full Membership.

ASLM is committed to providing mentoring and practical support to students wanting to establish student groups and lead other similar initiatives across Australia and New Zealand.
