American College of Lifestyle Medicine Launches Speakers Bureau to Bring Experts to Hospital Grand Rounds, Medical Schools and Conferences
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 13, 2018
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) today announced the launch of its Speakers Bureau for presentations at hospital grand rounds, medical schools, medical conferences and other events for health professionals. This service is its latest offering to provide medical professionals the evidence-based training in Lifestyle Medicine—using lifestyle prescriptions as a therapeutic intervention to treat, often reverse and prevent chronic disease—they often don't receive in medical school.
Lifestyle Medicine addresses the cause of 85% of chronic disease—unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. It promotes the combined use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substance use and other non-drug modalities. ACLM is the professional medical association addressing the need for quality education and board certification in the clinical practice of Lifestyle Medicine.
The Bureau's speakers will provide audiences with the road map to treating chronic disease at its root cause, educating clinicians about the field that is synonymous with value-based care. They'll learn why Lifestyle Medicine has been recognized as one of the top five emerging career fields in medicine by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
"Expert Lifestyle Medicine clinicians educating and inspiring their fellow clinicians is what we're facilitating," said ACLM Executive Director Susan Benigas. "Our goal is to be of service to those seeking exceptional content about the field many foresee as the future of real health care—providing expert presenters for grand rounds, medical schools and conferences."
ACLM's expert presenters also speak to how practicing Lifestyle Medicine also reinvigorates the passion that led most physicians into medicine—to become true healers. In light of the alarming trends of physician burn-out, Lifestyle Medicine is a powerful antidote for the physician and helps them provide improved outcomes at lower cost.
The speakers can provide a general overview of Lifestyle Medicine or specifics on the science of using food as medicine. The Bureau's goal is to empower members of the health care team with the health-promoting, disease-fighting, evidence-based message of Lifestyle Medicine.
