Lifestyle Medicine 2016 Australasia: It’s time!
To borrow a well-known campaign slogan in Australian politics, ‘it’s time’. It’s time to change the dominant medical paradigm which is widely regarded as unsustainable and seems focused on disease management, rather than prevention and modification.
The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM), the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), and the European Lifestyle Medicine Organisation (ELMO) are proud to invite you to attend the first International Conference on Lifestyle Medicine in clinical practice, healthcare and health policy to be held in Australasia (Lifestyle Medicine 2016 Australasia)
The conference will feature a ‘how to’ clinical focus designed for doctors and allied health practitioners practising as a multidisciplinary team, blended with a cutting-edge scientific program with a focus on translational research, and an ‘Innovation & Enterprise’ health policy future think tank resulting in a consensus statement to be released to local and international media.
An impressive line-up of leaders in science, health policy and clinical application of Lifestyle Medicine will be invited from Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and the Americas to provide an in-depth exploration of the conference themes and their inter-relationship, along with key public health, political and industry figures.
Master of Ceremonies
Dr Caroline West, known to many Australians for her appearances on Guide to the Good Life, Beyond Tomorrow, Good Medicine, Beyond 2000, 60 minutes and George Negus Tonight, will guide you through the feast of options and will facilitate the plenary panel discussions and the Innovation & Enterprise think tank.
Lifestyle Medicine promotes prevention, early intervention, self‑management, modification, and dare we say it, even regression of many chronic conditions. Let us re-inspire your practice at this extraordinary event.
We looking forward to meeting you at Lifestyle Medicine 2016 Australasia, to be held in Melbourne.
Dr Hamish Meldrum, President, ASLM
Dr Stefania Ubaldi, President, ELMO
Dr David Katz, President, ACLM
