The Journey Ahead

Building a Solid Foundation

Our course consists of two main components. The first component introduces you to the principles of lifestyle medicine, emphasizing the impact of physical activity, nutrition, sleep, stress, and sexuality on health. You will also gain insights into smoking cessation and alcohol use disorders. Furthermore, we equip you with the skills to develop and implement action plans for lifestyle medicine in both clinical and personal settings.

Hands-on Practical Experience

To receive your certificate of completion, you will need to engage in the second component, which is skills-based. You will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge you acquire by working with a person who wishes to make lifestyle changes. Through three meetings, either in person or via video conferencing, you will practice the strategies and techniques learned during the course. Additionally, you will have a designated mentor with professional healthcare training to guide you and provide valuable feedback on your progress.

Your Journey, Your Impact

The results of your assessments will be shared with you, and upon request, we can report your testing information or share your work with organizations such as your educational institution or employer.
